Presto Pizza Quesadilla

This recipe puts a twist on the quesadilla concept, is very low in calories and is ready in a flash.

1 whole wheat tortilla (lower carb, high fiber variety recommended)
1/4 cup marinara sauce
2 tablespoons low fat mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil
1-2 teaspoons chopped black olives

Lay the tortilla on a clean flat surface. Spread one side with the marinara sauce and sprinkle that same side with the remaining three ingredients. Microwave on high for 45 seconds-1 minute or heat in a small non-stick pan on medium heat for a few minutes on each side.

Variation: If you are watching sodium use low sodium tomato sauce and omit the olives.

Makes 1 serving
