Turkey Pesto Wrap

A couple weeks ago my father-in-law was in the hospital after the fall roundup incident and I was suddenly faced with the problem of coming up with some creative meals and snacks that my mother-in-law could take to the hospital with her.  It was also shortly after a reader asked me if I had any cold sandwiches she could take to work.

So I sat with that idea for a bit.  And sat.  And dreamed up some yummy cookies.  Then ate a yummy cookie.  And another.

It’s a sandwich.  Why is it so darn hard to think up a creative sandwich that would be okay without immediate refrigeration that’s not peanut butter and jelly and can be eaten on the run!?  Apparently I was over thinking it because as soon as I walked into my pantry to try to find some inspiration it hit me like a ton of bricks falling from a 10 story building.

I always pick up these whole wheat tortillas {Maya’s} when they go on sale at our grocery store for $1.  They freeze really well and I love everything about them.  They pair wonderfully with the Italian flavors in this sandwich and I’ve become quite addicted to this.  Perhaps I should buy stock in tortillas and a bigger freezer.


  1. Easy, delicious and totally portable! Perfect 🙂

  2. Smothered with pesto?! Heck yeah!! I could go for ten of these! I think I will. 🙂

  3. These wraps look amazing — and I have pesto and tortillas in my freezer just waiting to be used! 🙂

    Hope your father-in-law is doing better now!
