  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in heavy medium skillet over medium heat.

  6. Sprinkle prosciutto and sautéed onion over cheese.
  7. Season with pepper.

  10. Brush heavy, large skillet with some of melted butter.

  14. Bake until tortillas are golden and cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
  15. Transfer quesadillas to work surface. Cut each into 6 triangles. Arrange on platter and serve hot.
