Spinach and Mushroom Quesadillas

Sorry for all the mushroom and spinach recipes, I went to Costco and got enough of each to feed an army; here's what we had last night and Blaine loved it (I had cheerios).

Spinach and Mushroom Quesadillas (from www.allrecipes.com)

  • 1 (10 ounce) package chopped spinach
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 portobello mushroom caps, sliced
  • 4 (10 inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil/or nonstick cooking spray

  1. Prepare spinach according to package directions. Drain and pat dry. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese on one side of each tortilla. Place tortillas cheese side up on baking sheets, and bake 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in garlic and mushrooms, and cook about 5 minutes. Mix in spinach, and continue cooking 5 minutes. Place an equal amount of the mixture on the cheese side of each tortilla. Fold tortillas in half over the filling.
  3. Heat oil in a separate skillet over medium heat. Place quesadillas in the skillet one at a time, and cook 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges to serve.

You are so much better than I. I wouldn't cook when I was sick with Noel or Claire. Aaron ate a lot of those Voila dinners...
