Okay, I'm babbling here ... These Beef and Mozzarella Quesadillas are perfect for dinner, or cut into smaller wedges, they're just fine for lunch as well - especially as a special kid's lunch after school, perhaps ;-)

2.) Heat the Oil and saute the Onion, Garlic and Chili Flakes until soft and fragrant - add the Ground Beef and cook until done - season to taste with Salt & Pepper.
