    maesyn's Note:

    These quick 'n easy quesadillas are perfect for the late night snacker with discriminating tastes, or the bachelor/ette cooking for one. (though multiples are entirely possible - cooking them simultaneously will surely take balancing!). When cut into smaller wedges, these are also ideal as appetizers, and can be served between warm and room temperature. (*a plus to serve on St. Patty's day, as all the ingredients are GREEN!)

      Nummy! I have made this recipe many written...and I also like to cut the zucchini into thin strips and grill them so that they have nice grill marks before I throw them into the tortilla. Either way, these have awesome flavor...just take it easy on the pesto and cheese because together they make it really easy to end up in a place that is far greasier than you might like!
