Pizza Quesadillas Recipe

Pizza Quesadillas Recipe

When my husband and I needed a quick meal, I fixed this recipe 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. —Barbara B. Rupert, Edgefield, South Carolina

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, cook spaghetti sauce over medium-low heat for 3-4 minutes or until heated through.
