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!
