Veggie Quesadilla

I made a trip to the farmer's market over the weekend, where I always buy tons of fresh veggies. I had in mind that I would make vegetable sandwiches for us this week, but when I realized I didn't have any bread (and was already in my pj's and didn't want to go to the store), I had to change up my game plan.

Since whole wheat tortillas were in the pantry, I decided to make veggie quesadillas. I always keep a jar of pesto in the fridge and was super happy when I found some leftover goat cheese because that makes for a perfect combo!

What you'll need:
1 squash
1 zucchini
half of a red pepper
a handful of mushrooms
half of a red onion 
whole wheat tortillas 
2 to 3 tablespoons of pesto
about 4 oz. of goat cheese 
olive oil spray
salt and pepper to taste 
*makes 2 to 3 quesadillas 

How to make:
-Slice veggies and spray with olive oil (not much)
-Season veggies with salt and pepper
-Place veggies on a grill or George Forman until tender 
-Meanwhile, put pesto and goat cheese on one side of tortilla
-When veggies are tender, put on other side of tortilla
-Fold and cook on the grill until tortilla is warm and cheese is melted 
- Cut tortilla in half for quesadilla wedges 

These turned out very tasty! I loved the creamy texture the goat cheese added to the quesadilla. Chris gave it a thumbs up, which I'm always happy about when it's a veggie dish because he is usually a "where is the meat?" kind of guy. This a great summer dish - light and loaded with fresh summer flavors! Do you have any good veggie recipes? I'm always looking for more because my fridge is stocked with them throughout summer. Thanks for stopping by!
