This was a pleasant surprise! I'm not a big quesadilla fan, but the light use of cheese combined with the greens and sausage were a fantastic combination. A new family favorite.
Escarole, Sausage, and Fontina Quesadillas

A couple changes made this better for me. I made enough filling to add to a tortilla yesterday and today. The small changes I made when eating leftovers were warming the tortilla in a pan instead of in the oven, which kept it from getting crunchy/hard. And using warmed Trader Joe's marinara as a dipping sauce. It was ok without sauce, but seemed to be missing something as there are limited ingredients. Because the inside was Italian, I thought I'd give marinara a try - and it was hit the spot.

This is a nice alternative to calorie and cheese laden (but delicious) quesadillas. Prep time for me was significantly longer to wash and chop my greens. Also sausage took longer than 5 minutes to brown. But what can I say? A little sausage goes a long way and made for a flavorful bite and a good way to get your greens. I used gruyere instead of fontina and think it was too mild. Will use fontina next time.
