Servings: 4


1 small zucchini, diagonally sliced into 1/4 inch pieces

1 small summer squash, diagonally sliced into 1/4 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


white pepper

4 whole grain tortillas

4 tablespoon pesto, divided

2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided

4 ounces goat cheese, divided


Start by preparing your vegetables. Drizzle the sliced vegetables with 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and white pepper.

Place vegetables on the grill (or in a grill pan) and cook for approximately 3 minutes on each side or until just tender. Remove the vegetables from the grill and let cool for 5 minutes. Cut the grilled vegetables into roughly 1-inch pieces and set aside.

To assemble each quesadilla: Spread a tortilla with 1 tablespoon pesto. Sprinkle 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese on 1/2 of the tortilla. Add 1/4 of the grilled vegetables and crumble 1 ounce of goat cheese over them. Sprinkle another 1/4 cup mozzarella on top and fold the tortilla over to close.

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!
