-Flour Tortillas -Basil Pesto -Mozzarella String Cheese -Cooking Oil
-Mayonnaise -Tomato Paste -Garlic
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Stack flour tortillas on a plate and cover them with a damp paper towel. Microwave for about 30 seconds to steam the tortillas. This makes them soft and pliable so they won’t rip when you try to roll them.
Slice mozzarella string cheese in half length-wise. You’ll use one half per roll up. Smear basil pesto over the bottom half of a tortilla, staying away from the edges. Place one halved string cheese on the pesto.
Fold the sides of the tortilla in to close off the ends, then start rolling from the bottom up until the cheese is fully rolled up in the tortilla.
Place the roll ups seam side down on a lined baking sheet. Brush them lightly with cooking oil. This helps the tortillas get extra crispy. Bake the roll ups for about 13 minutes, or until lightly golden brown on the edges.
While the pesto mozzarella roll ups are baking, make the creamy tomato sauce. In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, tomato paste, and minced garlic.
Once the roll ups are lightly golden brown on the edges and you start to see a little cheese oozing, they’re ready! This should take about 13 minutes of baking, give or take a minute or two. Let them cool just enough to handle.
Enjoy the Pesto Mozzarella Roll Ups on their own or dip them into the creamy tomato sauce.
