Ingredients:

1 large Portobello mushroom, cleaned and sliced into ½ inch pieces
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

4 whole grain tortillas
4 tablespoon pesto, divided

-Place vegetables on the grill (or in a grill pan) and cook for approximately 3 minutes on each side or until just tender.

-Remove the vegetables from the grill and let cool for 5 minutes. Cut the grilled vegetables into roughly 1-inch pieces and set aside.

-To assemble each quesadilla: Spread a tortilla with 1 tablespoon pesto. Sprinkle ¼ cup mozzarella cheese on ½ of the tortilla. Add ¼ of the grilled vegetables and crumble 1 oz of goat cheese over them. Sprinkle another ¼ cup mozzarella on top and fold the tortilla over to close.
