  8. Butter 4 small Pyrex molds and place one slice eggplant, the gilthead pieces, another eggplant slice, more gilthead pieces, a spoon tomato dice, some basil and, finally, another eggplant slice to terminate. If the eggplant slices are smaller than the mold, take more slices to fill it sufficiently.

  12. Remove each charlotte from the mold and place them on a serving dish. Cover with sauce, decorate the tomatoes and a basil leaf, and serve!
