I came across this veggie and pesto quesadilla a while ago and it has quickly become a staple at our house. Everyone loves it! It’s simple to make. Healthy. And sooo good. All you have to do is assemble a few ingredients and get to grillin’. Enjoy!
*Makes 4 quesadillas (servings)
1 small zucchini, diagonally sliced into ¼ inch pieces
1 small summer squash, diagonally sliced into ¼ inch pieces
1 red bell pepper, stem and seeds removed
1 small red onion, sliced into ¼ inch rounds
1 large Portobello mushroom, cleaned and sliced into ½ inch pieces
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 whole grain tortillas
4 tablespoon pesto, divided
1-1/2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
4 oz feta cheese, divided
1. Start by preparing your vegetables. Drizzle the sliced vegetables with 2 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and white pepper.
2. Place vegetables on the grill (or in a grill pan) and cook for approximately 3 minutes on each side or until just tender.
3. Remove the vegetables from the grill and let cool for 5 minutes. Cut the grilled vegetables in thoroughly 1-inch pieces and set aside.
4. To assemble each quesadilla: Spread a tortilla with 1 tablespoon pesto. Sprinkle ¼ cup mozzarella cheese on ½ of the tortilla. Add ¼ of the grilled vegetables and crumble 1 oz of goat cheese over them. Sprinkle another ¼ cup mozzarella on top and fold the tortilla over to close.5. Place the quesadilla on a lightly oiled grill (or grill pan) and cook for 3 minutes on each side until the cheese in fully melted. Slice and serve the classiest quesadillas ever.
