This blog is for the harried cook, busy families, beginning cooks, anyone who needs or wants to get a simple meal on the table in 30 to 60 minutes. FORGET FEEDING YOUR FAMILY FAST FOOD AS A REGULAR DIET. Save fast food for an occasional treat and feed your family quick, healthy meals at home! Some recipes are original and some are ones I have collected over the years and found to be practical and tasty.

SPINACH AND FETA QUESADILLAS
(8-oz.) container fat-free cream cheese
teaspoon garlic powder
(8-inch) flour tortillas
(9-oz.) pkg. Green Giant™ Frozen Spinach, cooked, squeezed to drain
medium red bell pepper, finely chopped (1 cup)
oz. (1 cup) crumbled feta cheese
In small bowl, combine cream cheese, garlic powder and pepper; blend well. Spread 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture on each tortilla. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons each of spinach, bell pepper and cheese on half of each tortilla; fold tortillas in half.
Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place 2 folded tortillas in skillet; cook 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
Remove quesadillas from skillet; place on platter. Cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining folded tortillas. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges. Serve warm.
Yield: 32 appeitzer quesadillas
Note: This is a recipe I got from Pillsbury so that is why it says Green Giant spinach. Since it is their recipe I left their brand in but any brand is fine.
