This Mediterranean Veggie Quesadilla is one of my favorite quick dinners when I think there is nothing to make. It uses a few frozen veggies and pantry staples and is done is less than 15 minutes! I like to think of these as feta cheese quesadillas but they do use mozzarella cheese as well. You can never have enough cheese!

This fabulous fusion recipe was created during the most stressful 5 weeks of my life. You see, at the beginning of 2020, I had exactly 5 weeks to create a brand new 100 recipe cookbook. For my math nerds, that comes to researching, testing, and writing 2.86 recipes a day. A DAY!

While it was nothing short of complete madness during those 5 weeks, it was all worth it to see MY name on a full fledge cookbook being sold on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I can’t wait to actually hold one in my hands in a few weeks!!!
