This is a yummy healthy way to have quesadillas that I recieved from a vegetarian friend. The taste is fulfilling enough for those of us not on a diet!

I am a lover of quesadillas so this was the perfect recipe for me. I had almost everything in the house already and made it as written with wonderful results. Even someone who is not interested in using low-fat cheeses should give this recipe a try. It is delicious!
