How to make Italian Quesadillas:

Grill or broil the Premio Mild Italian Sausage until cooked through. Cool for ten minutes then cut into rounds.

1. Place four of the tortillas on the counter or a work surface. Divide the sausage rounds evenly over the tortillas. Tear the roasted red peppers into strips and divide the strips evenly among the sausage rounds.

2. Spoon 1/3 cup of marinara sauce over the top of each tortilla, then sprinkle on 1/2 cup of mozzarella, 1/4 cup of asiago and 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning blend. Repeat until all tortillas are topped, then place the four remaining tortillas over the toppings.

3. Using a gas grill or a large skillet, carefully slide each of the quesadillas onto a medium-high heated surface. Grill or cook until one side is lightly golden, then use two spatulas to flip the quesadillas over and brown the other side.

4. Cut each warm Italian sausage quesadilla into quarters to serve.
