Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    3/4 cornmeal (divided)
    3 eggs
    1 Tb store-bought pesto sauce
    3 Tb extra virgin olive oil
    1/2 C part skim ricotta cheese
    3 slices fresh mozzarella cheese (appx. 1 oz each)
    1 1/2 C marinara sauce
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    2 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp dried basil
