Green Goddess Pesto Quesadillas


Green Goddess Pesto Quesadillas || Italian Spinach Pesto Melts


1 teaspoon
Minced Garlic
3 cups
baby spinach
spinach wraps (or sub large tortillas )
2 tablespoons
Butter (spread onto one side of each wrap/tortilla)
2 tablespoons
Pesto (or sub tube basil paste)
1 cup
Mozzarella Cheese
an avocado (peeled, pitted, and sliced)
1⁄4 cup
Pistachios (crushed in a ziploc, or coarsely chopped)
1⁄3 cup
micro greens
1 cup
Mozzarella Cheese


  1. In a large skillet on medium high, saute the garlic and spinach for approximately 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Spinach should be softened/wilted, but not browned or burned. Remove from heat and set the spinach aside on a small plate. 
  2. Start to build your quesadilla in the skillet: first a tortilla with buttered-side down, then spread on the basil pesto/paste. Add 1 cup of cheese, sprinkled evenly. Then add spinach, avocado, pistachios, and micro greens. Top with remaining cheese and then second tortilla buttered-side facing up. 
  3. Turn the stove on to medium heat, and cook each side in the skillet for approximately 4 minutes --- tortilla should get slightly golden brown and cheese should be melted inside. 
  4. Cut into triangles and serve.
