Ingredients

1/2 pound hot Italian sausage, links

1/2 pound mild Italian sausage, links

12 (6-inch) flour tortillas

1 cup shredded fontina cheese

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 red onion, sliced, grilled and chopped

1 yellow pepper, grilled, peeled and chopped

1 red pepper, grilled, peeled and chopped

4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped

1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley

Sweet 100 Tomato Relish:

2 cups Sweet 100 tomatoes, sliced in half (sweet 100 tomatoes are very small, flavorful tomatoes)

1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons basil chiffonade

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat grill to high. Grill the sausages until golden brown on all sides and cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove, let rest for 5 minutes and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices. Lay 8 of the tortillas on a work surface. Divide the cheeses, sausage, onion peppers, garlic and parsley among them. Stack to make 4 and top with the remaining 4 tortillas. Brush the tops with the olive oil and grill for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown. Brush with more oil, turn over and continue grilling until golden brown and the cheese melts. Remove the quesadilla, quarter and top with the relish.
