Tomato Basil Quesadillas by Jodie Fitz

 Supplies Needed;

 1 sun-dried Tomato Wrap (per fish)

2 oz. Tomato Basil Cheddar Cheese, shredded (per fish)

Price Chopper Non-stick Cooking Spray

Price Chopper Sliced Olives

Price Chopper pretzel rods

Price Chopper thin pretzel sticks

Price Chopper pretzel twists


 Wash the grapes and set aside.

 Fold the sun-dried Tomato Wrap in half. Using clean kitchen scissors, cut out the shape of a fish keeping the folded edge intact. Note: You can cut out a template of fish if needed on waxed paper first.

 Open the tortilla wrap that is in the shape of a fish and evenly distribute the shredded cheese on one side of the opened wrap and then close it. Cook the cheese tortilla filled wrap on both sides like you are cooking a quesadilla or grilled cheese on a griddle style pan that has been coated with a light layer of butter over medium to low heat. Cook it until both sides are a light golden brown & the cheese is fully melted.

 Place the tortilla on to a large plate. Add a sliced olive as the eye. Cut the grapes in half and add them to plate, flat side down, to serve as fish bubbles. Lay the pretzel rod as the fishing pole, lay the thin pretzel stick as the fishing string & break a pretzel twist in half to serve as the fishing hook.

 Note: You can find the tomato basil seasoned cheese in the dairy aisle at Price Chopper Supermarket Stores.
