You will love this Gluten-Free Easiest Baked Quesadilla. Think three different layers…sautéed onions, bell peppers and mushrooms, then garlicky ricotta, mozzarella and spinach. And for the final layer, a topping made with fresh tomatoes, fresh basil and melted mozzarella. 

This gluten-free quesadilla meal is great because it is quick and hearty for any night of the week. Quesadilla is known to be a Mexican dish, but I combined the gluten-free tortillas with an Italian twist. Sort of like Mexico meets Italy. 

The baked quesadilla details.

The quesadilla is stuffed with enticing layers and then baked. Starting with a typical Mexican mix of sautéed vegetables like onions, bell peppers and mushrooms and topped with cheese. The second layer is made with creamy ricotta and spinach filling seasoned with garlic, a hint of nutmeg, cloves and baby spinach throughout. The creamy ricotta layer would be the Italian half, you know, sort of a lasagna layer. For the topping, again Italian. Tomatoes, basil and gooey yummy mozzarella topping. Once the quesadilla is baked, everything melts together, and it is so tasty.

The gluten-free baked quesadilla is served warm as an entree, maybe add a light green salad if you like. However, it makes a hearty snack any time of the day. If you have any leftovers, they are great the next day, and you don’t even have to re-heat the quesadilla. However, I would bring the quesadilla to room temperature. You can also add it to your lunch box or have a piece when the hunger kicks in. You will be hooked after the first bite!
