An easy and quick summer recipe found in "Real Simple" magazine. (If you don't have access to a grill then try broiling them until the cheese melts and tortillas turn golden brown.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat grill to medium.
  2. Arrange 4 of the tortillas on a cutting board. Arrange the mozzarella and tomatoes on the tortillas, leaving a 1-in border around the outside empty. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Top with the remaining tortillas.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the basil, pine nuts, oil, and remaining salt. Set aside.
  4. Cook the quesadillas around the perimeter of the grill until the cheese melts and the tortillas are crisp and golden. (About 2 minuted per side.).
  5. Immediately cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve with the basil salad.
