Pizza Quesadillas

 Pizza Quesadillas
When my husband and I needed a quick meal, I fixed this using leftover ingredients. Unlike traditional Mexican quesadillas, it calls for Italian meats, cheeses and seasoning. Serve it with a green salad topped with Italian dressing for a simple dinner for two.
2 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 10 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 2 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 4 flour tortillas (10 inches)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 8 thin slices hard salami
  • 12 slices pepperoni
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

  • In a small saucepan, cook spaghetti sauce over medium-low heat for
  • 3-4 minutes or until heated through.
  • Meanwhile, spread butter over one side of each tortilla. Sprinkle
  • unbuttered side of two tortillas with mozzarella cheese; top with
  • salami and pepperoni. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and oregano. Top
  • with remaining tortillas, buttered side up.
  • Cook on a griddle over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side or
  • until cheese is melted. Cut into wedges; serve with warmed spaghetti
  • sauce.
  • Yield: 2 servings.
