Preparation time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 30
Servings: 4


  • Tbsp. olive oil
  • small onion, thinly sliced
  • small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • jar (lb. 8 oz.) Ragu® Old World Style® Pasta Sauce
  • 10-inch burrito size flour tortillas
  • Cup shredded mozzarella cheese (about 4 oz.)


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, over medium-high heat and cook onion and red pepper, stirring occasionally, 4 minutes or until tender. Reduce heat to medium, then stir in 1-1/2 cups Pasta Sauce. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until sauce is thickened.

  2. Evenly spread sauce mixture on tortillas, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with cheese and fold in half; set aside. Clean skillet.

  3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in same skillet, over medium heat and cook quesadillas, two at a time, turning once, 4 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Cut quesadillas into wedges and serve with remaining Pasta Sauce, heated.

    Note: Quesadillas can also be baked. Place folded filled tortillas on baking sheet and bake in preheated 425° oven 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut and serve as above.

    Tip: Make-your-own quesadilla night is a fun (and delicious) way to spend family time.
