Turkey Pizza Quesadillas

Quesadillas are one of my kid’s favorite meals. It’s also one of my favorites because they are so easy to make. We love regular chicken or cheese quesadillas but I wanted to change things up a bit. I decided to make an Italian version instead and it worked! The pasta sauce helps hold the ingredients together inside the tortilla and the seasonings in the turkey really make this taste similar to pizza. It’s just a simple and tasty version of one of our favorite meals!

8 6” corn tortilla shells

1/3 lb of ground turkey
1 tsp basil
½ tsp oregano
½ tsp garlic, minced
1/3 cup pasta sauce
¼ cup mushrooms, sliced
¼ cup bell pepper, chopped
1 cup spinach
½ cup shredded cheese

  • In a large skillet, brown turkey and add in basil, oregano and garlic.
  • On a preheated griddle, place tortilla shells. Spread pasta sauce over 4 of the shells.
  • Layer cooked turkey, mushrooms, peppers, spinach and cheese onto the pasta sauce covered shells.
  • Top with the remaining plain shells and cook on each side until slightly brown.
