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 for a simple dinner for two. —Barbara Rupert, Edgefield, South Carolina

Ingredients

  • 1 cup meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 2 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 4 flour tortillas (10 inches)
  • 1 cup 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

  1. In a small saucepan, cook spaghetti sauce over medium-low heat for 3-4 minutes or until heated through.
  2. Meanwhile, spread butter over one side of each tortilla. Sprinkle unbuttered sides of two tortillas with mozzarella cheese; top with salami and pepperoni. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and oregano. Top with remaining tortillas, buttered side up.
  3. 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.
