Greek Quesadillas

I’m always looking for delicious meatless meals that my family will enjoy (my husband is pretty much a carnivore).  These Greek quesadillas fit the bill!  I did have to assemble several custom versions for the picky eaters–no artichoke hearts, olives, etc., but I liked mine fully loaded!

A cast-iron skillet is my favorite means of cooking quesadillas, but you can also arrange them on a large baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes.  They are delicious served with tzatziki sauce for dipping.

  4. Fold over the bare half of each tortilla, enclosing the fillings.
