Quesadillas with Prosciutto and Sun-dried Tomatoes

Quesadillas are quick, tasty and simple to make, great for appetizer, main dish and even breakfast. Prosciutto is one of my favorite ingredient, I really missed its salty taste, the last time was in May 2009 with Zucchini Prosciutto Sandwiches, it has been almost a year that I haven't touched it. I still have half a jar of sun-dried tomatoes left from the Mediterranean Rolls and cheddar cheese. This combo gives an amazing taste.

3. Cook quesadillas until golden brown on both sides and cheese melted, flipping once.


  1. I love Quesadillas! They are on my list of things to make but I never seem to get down to it. Although they are very versatile and easy to make. The "Italian" version sounds interesting especially since I am a great fan of sun dried tomatoes :)

  2. Wow,such a droolworthy quesadillas..

  3. I love that there is prosciutto in this recipe! Cheers to your Italian version - I love it!

  4. I love quesadillas! I love the Mediterranean twist on this, it's a great idea!

  5. Thanks everyone. I can't believe myself that prosciutto and sun-dried tomatoes go well together.
