While I do love all types of food from Mexican to Thai and Brazillian to French, Italian will always have a large place in my heart. Sometimes I like to take a dish from another country and make it into an Italian masterpiece, such as this recipe, the Caprese Quesadilla.

Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 1 flour tortilla
  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup basil
  • 1 cup marinara sauce

Start by slicing the roma tomatoes and topping the flour tortilla with the mozzarella cheese and sliced tomatoes.

Next, top with the basil and parmesan cheese.

Then fold the tortilla in half and place over medium heat on the stove top. Brown on the first side then flip.

Heat up the marinara sauce while the quesadilla is cooking. Once browned on both sides remove from the skillet and cut into slices.
