Ingredients
  

  • 1 red onion, sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 1 zucchini, quartered lengthwise
  • 1 yellow squash, quartered lengthwise
  • 1 red pepper, quartered lengthwise
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro or basil
  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 11/2 cup (6 ounces) shredded smoked Provolone or Cheddar Jack cheese

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a 15x10-inch baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Arrange vegetables including garlic in a single layer on pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Cook for 15 minutes until barely tender.
    Cut vegetables into cubes or slivers; peel and mash garlic. Mix together in a bowl; toss with cilantro or basil.
  • Sprinkle left side of each tortilla with half of cheese. Place vegetables evenly on top of cheese; top with remaining cheese. Fold right side of tortilla over to close and press on top to slightly flatten.
    Grill each quesadilla in a large skillet or griddle over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side or until golden and cheese melts. Cut each in half.

Notes

Note: To cook ahead, when grilling outdoors, cook extra vegetables until lightly charred and barely tender. Refrigerate until needed. Change the flavor with the choice of herb.
