  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dry seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • freshly grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 can tomato sauce (8 ounces)

  5. Spoon the tomato sauce over them and then sprinkle with the dried basil. Arrange the mozzarella cheese slices over the cutlets and bake at 350° for 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Serve the cutlets and sauce with spaghetti, linguine, or angel hair pasta, along with garlic bread and a tossed salad. Be sure to offer more Parmesan cheese at the table.
