    I really liked this! I can see this becoming a "go to" lunch. All the flavors went so well together and it was a light meal, meaning I didn't feel gross after eating it, like I can after eating some heavier quesadillas. Thanks for posting this keeper recipe.

    Lovely blend of flavors! I omitted the salt (personal preference) and used whole wheat tortillas. Thanks for sharing! PAC Fall 09

    Very very good Quesadillas. They kept reminding me of Napoleon Dynamite saying 'Come and get your quesadilla!' - I digress - I liked the flavors of the zucchini and red onion together. I did not like the tomato part, so I left it off. Also, I added some shredded pepper jack cheese to give it some spice. I liked it very much that way. Great idea. Made and Reviewed for Veg*N Swap 7 - Thanks! :)

    Made these tonight, wanting something different and veggie-friendly. I'm not sure where I went wrong, but I'm going to assume it's 90% chef error -- :roll: -- and therefore not leave a star rating (I should really know by now to NOT cook when I'm under the weather!). I've never attempted quesadillas before, so I had trouble with the mechanics -- getting the timing and filling amounts just right. I also made the mistake of using "salsa" flavored tortillas, thinking that this would add flavor... well, it *did*... but not in a way I liked. One thing I do know is that when I try to make these again, I will replace the thyme with oregano or basil, out of sheer preference for how the flavor blends with tomatoes and zucchini. I will also try shredding the zucchini, to see if maybe that'll make the filling easier to work with. Thanks for sharing!
