His vegetarian twist on the traditional cheesy tortilla is a delightful little switch up that has a gourmet feel to it, and aren't the colors just beautiful? These quesadillas are perfect paired up with some sautéed veggies or homemade guacamole. 

These are so much better than heading out to eat greasified Mexican food.  You don't even need the entire basket of chips and queso...and that's saying a lot for me. 

Added health extras? These quesadillas are made with whole wheat tortillas and packed with spinach which is filled with lots of good-for-you vitamins and antioxidants. These are perfect for a busy weeknight when you want a healthy and quick meal!

Roasted Red Pepper, Spinach, and Goat Cheese Quesadilla
Serves 2 

 2 whole-wheat flour tortillas (I love La Tortilla Factory)
1/2 large roasted red pepper, sliced
2 cups raw baby spinach
1/3 cup goat cheese
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tsp olive oil 

1. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a saute pan and cook spinach until wilted. Add the roasted red pepper and cook for an additional 1 minute.
2. Divide the spinach and pepper mixture and place on one side of each of the two tortillas, add the cheese mixture.
3. Fold each tortilla in half and cook in a medium saute pan on each side for 2-3 minutes or until slightly brown and crispy.
