Spinach + Tomato Quesadilla with Pesto

Pin It

 I needed a quick lunch this past week so I found some odds and ends around the kitchen, channeled my inner Napoleon, and made myself a dang quesa-dilluh :) I love the two cheese combo of mozzarella and feta. The mozzarella holds everything together while the feta adds awesome flavor. The spinach wilts as it heats, so don't be afraid to pile it on!

A peek inside

Gluten-free (with gluten-free tortilla)
Makes 2 servings

Ingredients
1 roma tomato, thinly sliced
Baby spinach
Pesto (try homemade!)
Feta crumbles
Shredded mozzarella
2 large flour or gluten-free tortillas

Directions
Place a tortilla on a skillet over medium heat, and spread a layer of pesto on top.
Add a light layer of mozzarella cheese, then feta.
Add tomato slices, spinach, and top with another layer of mozzarella cheese.
Place the other tortilla on top, heat for about 5 minutes, flip, and heat for another 5 minutes or until cheese has melted.

    1. Hi! The kind I used for these photos was the pre-made pesto from Trader Joe's. But now that I'm vegan there are tons of awesome veganized versions out there. Try one of these! :)

    1. Hi Nadine! I love where your head's at ;) These can definitely be made vegan with my vegan pesto and non-dairy cheese (or maybe hummus, cashew cheese, etc.) I definitely have to do a vegan remake of these!! Thanks for your sweet comment!

    1. Hi Dianna! I've kept my homemade vegan pesto in the fridge for about 3-4 before it's eaten up, so anything past that I'm not sure. Just try to use your best judgement :) Hope you enjoy!
