    1. In a large nonstick pan, cook red pepper, courgette, squash, red onion and mushrooms in olive oil over medium-high heat for about 7 minutes, or until just tender. Remove vegetables from pan.
    2. Coat the same pan with cooking oil or spray; place one tortilla in the pan. Sprinkle some grated cheese evenly over tortilla and layer some of the vegetable mixture over the cheese.

Remove quesadilla from pan; repeat with remaining ingredients. Cut each quesadilla into 8 triangles. Serve hot.

    These were good. I added some garlic powder and salt and pepper when sauteing. And some chopped fresh basil too. I baked them in the oven instead of doing them in the skillet. I just brushed some olive oil on the tortillas, turned them oil side down on a baking sheet and put some filling and cheese on one side and folded over, then stuck them in a 425 degree oven for about 5 minutes to get a little crunch out of the tortillas. Thanks for a great idea!  -  13 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I submitted this recipe, and you can use any vegetable you like--adding eggplant, spinach, or black beans also works well. Have fun using the fresh ingredients your family enjoys! This recipe makes 6 servings out of the 3 quesadillas. You can use reduced carb tortillas also, and more cheese, but this was created to be a healthy recipe ; ).  -  10 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    *** WORTHY OF TEN STARS ** These quesadillas were fantastic!! I also followed Nugget's suggestion of filling 1/2 of a large tortilla, folding over, and baking in the oven at 425 degrees for about 8-10 minutes or until brown. I also added some garlic powder and onion powder to the veggies while they were cooking. You can top the quesadillas with sour cream, salsa, and sliced avocado too. So healthy, so delicious! Excellent recipe!  -  30 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
