  • Prep time: 15 Minutes|Cook time: 15 Minutes|Total time: 30 Minutes



Cook Italian sausage in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat until no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
Wipe out the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and add 1 tablespoon butter, sliced mushrooms, and salt. Cook and stir until the mushrooms are tender and no liquid remains, about 5 minutes. Place mushrooms and sausage in a bowl and stir to combine.
Spray each tortilla with cooking spray on one side. Flip the tortilla over and one one half layer about 2 tablespoons of cheese, 1/4 cup of the sausage mixture, and another 2 tablespoons of cheese. Fold the tortilla in half over the mixture.
Place two pizza-dillas in the pan and cook on each side for 1-2 minutes or until nicely browned. Repeat with remaining pizza-dillas.
Using a pizza cutter, cut each piece into thirds. Serve with warmed marina sauce (garnished with Parmesan cheese, it desired).
