Italian Quesadillas

I love the flavors of summer. Tomatoes and mozzarella cheese are my favorite, if you can’t already tell from my previous blog posts. This time, I thought I might try something I saw on tv; Italian quesadillas. I really thought the kids would like them. I used fresh mozzarella, tomatoes from my friend’s garden, basil from my porch, and chicken roasted with Italian spices. I would have grilled but it looked like rain and I knew if I started grilling it would rain for sure. It didn’t, of course. While my husband and I really enjoyed them, my kids weren’t so impressed. Oh well, as long as they keep trying new things; that is the important thing.

Along with the quesadillas, we had salad with Italian dressing, tomatoes, pancetta, ricotta, and eggs. Dinner was nice and light; perfect for a summer evening.

Italian quesadillas

Flour tortillas – 10 inch
Fresh tomatoes – sliced thinly
Fresh mozzarella – sliced thinly
Grilled or roasted chicken with Italian seasonings
Basil leaves
Olive oil

On one half of tortilla, in layers place cheese, tomatoes, chicken and basil. Add salt, pepper, and drizzle olive oil over top of layers. Close and place on flat grill seasoned with olive oil. Cook over medium to medium high heat until cheese is melted and chicken is warmed through. Serve immediately.
