Yum... leftovers! Had some left over sausage and sauce from the other night, so I decided to make some quesadillas. I used my Foreman grill, but you also use a quesadilla maker, panini press, or stovetop grill.
2 (4 oz.) chicken sausage links
3 basil leaves, chopped
2 whole wheat pitas
1 cup fat-free mozzarella cheese
non-stick cooking spray
1 cup roasted pepper marinara for dipping
Spray a small skillet with cooking spray. Run a knife along the long side of each sausage link and remove meat inside. Heat over medium heat until browned through. Add basil and toss. (Don't add basil until meat is cooked or else it will get limp and lose its flavor). Heat grill. Slice each pita in half forming a total of 4 pockets. Add 1/4 cup of shredded cheese to each and 1/4 of the sausage and basil mixture. Lightly spray each side the pita with non-stick cooking spray and place on grill. Cook until pita is browned and cheese is fully melted. Garnish with basil leaves and serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
