Brie & Grape Quesadilla

Here is a fancy little snack that goes way back in my archives. My sister & I discovered something like this years & years ago at the Hali'imaile General Store on Maui. This is such a great combination of savory and sweet and it looks so pretty!

This is served with a green pea pesto that adds freshness and even more flavor. To make the pesto, thaw about a cup of frozen peas and put into a food processor. Add some fresh basil, about a 1 inch chunk of chopped red onion, some salt & pepper and about 1 Tbs. olive oil. Mix till combined.

For the quesadilla, put a little butter in a heated pan, add one flour tortilla, layer on thin slices of brie cheese and some sliced grapes. Top with another tortilla and allow to brown on both sides. Remove from pan, cut into triangles and serve with green pea pesto. So easy. So good. And dare I say, so sexy!
