You can make your own pesto or buy some from your favorite farmer or local grocer ... if you are here in NC, I am a fan of the homemade Walnut Basil Pesto from Michele's Garden. So good!
However, if you have got some basil - and it is really, really, easy to grow basil just about anywhere - why not make your own pesto?
|Why not make pesto with ARUGULA?|
- handfuls of basil and/or arugula,
- a dash or two of sea salt,
- drizzles of olive oil,
- parmesan cheese
To make the quesadillas, use your favorite tortillas - I have a few delicious corn tortillas that I enjoy using but my friend just brought over some gluten-free tortillas made by Rudi's - wow! They were so delicious. I tried the Fiesta Tortillas - they were so soft and tasty - look for them near you, I found some at Earth Fare here in Charlotte.

Fold the tortilla in half so that the edges touch - press down with a spatula so that the quesadilla seals itself together with the melted cheese. Flip once. Remove from heat and cut into little pick-me-up triangles. Serve with fresh fruit. Lunch. Dinner. Done!
