Portobello and Cheese Quesadillas

Vegetarian Portobello Quesadillas

A favorite quick weeknight vegetarian dinner.  Mushrooms and cheese are excellent sources of vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, necessary for calcium absorption and building strong bones. Most people today are not getting enough vitamin D.     

Serve with our Mexican Tomato Soup if you like to dip.
