“I had the best quesadillas at a restaurant in Vermont while on vacation and I wanted to duplicate them myself. This is what I cam up with and I think it's pretty close. It is a great way to use up all those zucchini. I bake my quesadillas in the oven, but feel free to make them any way you like. Make sure that you serve with fresh pico de gallo and sour cream for the full experience. Enjoy!”
