Spinach mushroom and mozzarella quesadillas recipe

These easy mushroom and spinach quesadillas are not only super easy to make, but they are full of healthy ingredients. Skip the flour tortillas and opt for a healthier version such as a whole grain tortilla. The mozzarella adds a little cheesy goodness and also helps hold the veggies in place. This is a great way to also sneak veggies into your kids' diets.
