SERVING

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 8 oz. wild mushroom mix or shiitake mushrooms, cleaned, stemmed and sliced (about 4 cups)
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 Tbs. sherry
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 6 8-inch whole-wheat tortillas

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat, and sauté mushrooms 5 minutes, or until tender. Add bell pepper and sherry, and season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium, and cook 4 to 5 minutes more, or until liquid evaporates. Remove from heat.
  2. Combine cheeses in small bowl. Sprinkle bottom half of each tortilla with 1/4 cup cheese mixture. Top with mushroom mixture, and fold in half.
  3. Coat large nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat. Cook quesadillas 2 minutes, or until bottoms are golden. Flip and cook second side 2 minutes more, or until browned and cheeses are melted. Serve hot.
