Active: 30 min Total: 30 min
These quesadillas aren't exactly traditional, but we think you'll love the combination of Italian-inspired flavors folded inside toasted tortillas. The tomato and basil "salsa" adds a fresh complement to the melted cheese of the quesadillas.


Italian-Style Vegetable Quesadillas:
  • Corn, frozen or fresh - 1 cup
  • Grilled vegetables (leftover from Tuesday) - 2 cups , finely chopped
  • Beans, cannellini or white (14 oz / 397 g) - 1 can
  • Cheese, shredded Italian blend - 8 oz
  • Italian seasoning - 2 tsp
