Recipe 9 of my 100 Healthy Recipes Challenge! This is such a tasty quesadilla and bursting with nutritious goodness too! I was late home and needed to put a meal together in the shortest possible time, and I was not in the mood for a sandwich. Wheat Quesadilla with Pesto sounded good.
The Tortillas were store bought and the fillings took very little time to assemble. The pesto was readily available in my fridge. I used Red pepper pesto, but any pesto or herb based spread would be as good as this one. To make a Basil pesto with Purple or Green basil leaves, please check the link below for my recipe on this blog:
For the vegetables and herbs too, you could use a combination of whatever you have on hand, though the one I used had all the contrasts of colour and texture which I look for in the dishes I make. I used a grated mixture of Italian cheeses which were firm and did not melt into gooey messes.
Serve the Wheat Quesadilla with Pesto, with guacamole and sour cream. For the recipe for guacamole, refer my Recipe on this blog, in the link below
