Parmesan Crusted Meatball Quesadillas Ingredients: Carando Abruzzee Meatballs
Favorite Marinara Sauce
Directions: Bake Carando Meatballs in oven according to package. Once baked, place in a bowl and coat in your favorite marinara sauce. Coat a skillet or griddle in cooking spray and set to medium-high heat. Place tortilla on griddle and add a layer of mozzarella cheese. Cut meatballs in half and place on tortilla and cheese. Sprinkle on a bit more mozzarella cheese. Cover with a second tortilla. Using a stick of butter, rub butter all over the top of the quesadilla. Sprinkle a coat of parmesan cheese over the tortilla. Carefully flip the quesadilla and repeat the butter and parmesan coating. After 1 minute, flip the quesadilla and leave for 1 minute. Once all the cheese is melted and the parmesan has created a crust on the tortilla, remove from the griddle. Carefully cut into slices and serve with a marinara dipping sauce. The parmesan crust is so flavorful and pairs perfectly with the Carando Abruzzee Meatballs – seriously mouthwatering! Hope you enjoy!
