It’s my oldest son, Alec’s, birthday this weekend so I thought I would feature a recipe that he actually made up himself. It’s Pizza Quesadillas, and for those of you who have kids, take note. My kids actually make these by themselves with little help (except turning on and off the stove) so when you’re in a pinch on what to have for dinner, give these quesadillas a try.
Yield: 4 servings
4 tablespoons marinara sauce, divided
4 whole wheat or flour tortillas
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1/4 cup turkey pepperoni, mushrooms (optional)
2 teaspoons butter
1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Place 1 tablespoon marinara sauce over 1 tortilla. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese and other toppings as desired. Top with another tortilla; cook in butter 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Serve immediately.
