Roasted Vegetable Quesadillas

Im always looking for quick, healthy meals to prepare for my family. It can be challenging to incorporate veggies, lean protein and whole grains into your meals, while still appealing to non veggie loving husbands and toddlers!

These roasted vegetable quesadillas came together in about 20 minutes, and I had a slew of leftover roasted veggies to repurpose throughout the rest of the week. You could try a roasted veggie sandwich, add to a salad, or combine with a lean protein for dinner.

To roast the veggies, I used my Breville panini maker, one of my favorite kitchen gadgets!

This is such a versatile tool that can really take the standard meal to the next level. Think having a sandwich for dinner is boring? How about a panini? Yes, that sounds much better!

These quesadillas are so versatile! Zucchini is not your thing? Thats ok, sub in some eggplant! You hate goat cheese? Try using monterray jack or sharp cheddar. Not a pesto fan? Try a sundried tomato spread, or even marinara sauce!

Hope you enjoy it!
