Ingredients
  • Quesadilla:
  • 12 (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 8 slices prosciutto di Parma, thinly sliced
  • Rosemary Oil:
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped chives
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
Directions

Quesadilla: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Place 8 tortillas on an ungreased baking sheet. Spread half the cheese, onion and black pepper on each and season to taste with salt and pepper. Stack to make 2 layer layers, cover with remaining tortilla and brush the tops with oil and sprinkle with some of the Parmesan cheese. Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until the tortillas are lightly golden brown and the cheese has melted. Cut into quarters, top each quarter with a slice of prosciutto and drizzle with the rosemary oil.

Make the rosemary oil: Combine the oil, rosemary, chives and salt and pepper in a food processor and process until smooth. Strain through a fine strainer and store in the refrigerator.
