> 8 oz mild Italian sausages
> cooking spray
> 1 cup chopped onion
> 1 (15 oz) can sweet potato or pumpkin puree
> 1 (4 oz) can diced green chilies, drained
> 8 multi-grain tortillas
> 1 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and arrange the sausages on top; prick the sausages with a fork. Roast 10 min., or until cooked through, turning once. Slice and set aside. Remove foil from pan and discard. Keep oven on.
While sausages roast, spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray and cook the onions until they start to soften, about 5 min. Add the sweet potato purée and drained chilies and stir over low heat until mixture starts to bubble.
Spray one side of 4 tortillas with cooking spray and place spray-side-down on the baking sheet. Spread evenly with the sweet potato purée. Top with the sliced sausages, cheese, and remaining tortillas to make 4 quesadillas. Spray tops of quesadillas with cooking spray and bake 5–10 min. Cut each quesadilla into 6 pieces and serve.


Quesadilla cook-times are notoriously finicky, so don’t be afraid to give them an extra minute or two in the oven, to make sure they’re warmed all the way through.
