Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the pork slices in a large bowl, season with salt and set aside.

2. In a small bowl, combine the pesto and olive oil, stirring with a spoon. Pour the mixture over the pork slices and stir until evenly coated.

4. Once the pork is browned, add the garlic and sauté for another 2 minutes, stirring often.

5. Add the cherry tomatoes to the skillet and continue cooking for another 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

6. Remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the pork and tomatoes to a baking dish. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through.
