I have to say, since getting pregnant, my relationship with food has seriously changed. One week, I can’t get enough of something, and the next week, I am so disgusted by it that I can’t even be around the smell of it cooking. It makes choosing tasty, healthy choices quite the challenge. I’ve had an aversion to cooked vegetables for a few weeks now, so I keep trying to incorporate different veggies into my diet gradually.

That is why I’ve been on the hunt for easy, fun meals that won’t make me queasy. That’s why when I found this super easy and fun Friday night meal on Pinterest, I just had to try it. (Also, it looks very kid-friendly – something I am going to have to get use to making!)


I started off by choosing my favourite pizza toppings.

Next, begin layering them on your tortilla. Start with cheese, then add your veggies. DSCN0967

Then add your peperoni and more cheese, to hold it all together.  DSCN0968

I like to use my panini press when making quesadillas. I find it gives all the ingredients a nice, even melt on all sides. DSCN0969

Next, using a pizza cutter, slice it up into wedges. DSCN0970Serve the quesadilla with a side of marinara sauce for dipping, and enjoy!


You will need:

4 whole wheat tortillas

5 small mushrooms

1 small red onion

1 package of low sodium peperoni

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1 cup marinara sauce, to serve

Begin by slicing your mushrooms and onion very thin. Layer your ingredients on half of the tortilla, beginning first with the cheese, then veggies, then peperoni slices, followed by more cheese. Transfer to a panini press, or hot skillet, and cook until cheese is evenly melted. Slice into wedges and serve alongside marinara sauce for dipping.
