Garlic mushroom and spinach quesadilla

I have lots of spinach in my garden and tried to come up with a new way to use it.

Kelsie's garlic mushroom and spinach Quesadillas:

Half a small carton of mushrooms, sliced
A handful of fresh spinach, chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced (don't use too much, if your cloves are big only use 1)
Shredded cheese
2 tortillas (I like the kind you buy raw and cook yourself on the spot!)
1 Tbsp butter
Salt and pepper

In a frying pan, melt butter. Add sliced mushrooms and garlic. Cook until they are the way you like them. Season with salt and pepper. (Don't salt before they are cooked, it draws out water and causes them to take longer to cook) Add spinach and cook just a minute or two until not bright green anymore. As soon as it has all changed colors (to the cooked color of spinach), set aside.

Put one tortilla in pan and top with cheese. Add spinach and mushrooms and second tortilla. Cook until cheese is melted.

Cut and serve. Yum!
