Spinach and Mozzarella Quesadillas

Does everything have to be authentic? This filling would also make a nice panini or flatbread sandwich.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a medium skilled over medium heat. Add onions and cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Sprinkle in sugar and cook another 10 minutes until onions are browned; do not burn. Stir in the spinach and remove skillet from heat.
  2. Heat another skilled over medium high heat. Add one tortilla to dry skillet and cook 15 seconds. Sprinkle half the tortilla with 1/2 cup cheese, place 1/4 of the spinach filling on top, add 1/4 of the pepper strips. Fold empty half of the tortilla over the filling and press down with the spatula about 10 seconds.
  3. Slide quesadilla onto serving plate. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

I liked this, but dh didn't. I added just a very little sugar and salt.

Made for lunch with DH in mind, there is a resturant that serves something like this and he loves it! So I thought he might like this and I was right. He loved it and told me this is a keeper!!!! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 5

These are really good! I did add about 1/2 tsp of minced garlic and a little salt to the spinach (personal preference) and they were perfect! We gobbled them up in no time! No leftovers at all. Made for ZWT5 - Epicurean Queens
