Expert Tips

You can use any type of tortilla for these quesadillas. Try plain, fat-free, vegetable or herb tortillas to give the quesadillas a different twist.

These are great served as an appetizer, too. Offer them to family or friends as a prelude to an Italian-style meal. Don't forget to warmed marinara or spaghetti sauce for dipping.

You can enjoy the flavors of many cheeses when you use the Italian blend cheese, which can include mozzarella, provolone, Romano, Asiago and Parmesan cheeses.
