Much to my surprise, I found that I have not shared this recipe with you. I went to the search box of my blog to view the recipe for the ingredients so I could stop off at the store on my way home from work and it was not there! How could I keep this to myself for so long? I have made this several times, and always say to myself that I must share this recipe.
Well, now is the time.
This is a delicious, healthy, and quick dinner to prepare, even on a weeknight. The recipe is easily adaptable to your likes or dislikes, or to what you may have on hand. What vegetable does not taste irresistible roasted and sprinkled with cheese? Oh, and a little Sriracha Sauce if you, like me, like things spicy.

from this recipe as well and forgot. That's OK. I'll add them to these leftovers to make what I hope is an awesome omelette tomorrow morning.
Yep, these are tasty.
Roasted Vegetable Quesadillas
2 cups quartered and sliced potatoes
½ cup sliced onions
¾ cup sliced red or green bell peppers
1 ½ cps sliced zucchini
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced or pressed (I always add extra)
½ teaspoon dried oregano (yep, add more)
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
4 – 8-inch flour tortillas (I used whole wheat)
1 cup grated cheese (I used white cheddar)
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Toss all of the vegetables with the olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt, and black pepper until evenly coated. Spread them on a large baking sheet in a single layer. Roast in the oven until the potatoes are tender and beginning to brown, about 25-30 minutes.
Pile about ¼ of the roasted vegetable filling on one half of each of the tortillas, leaving a ½-inch border around the outer edge. Top the filling with ¼ cup of the cheese. Fold the tortilla over the filling to form a half-moon shape.
Heat a lightly oiled large skillet on medium heat. When the skillet is hot, cook two of the quesadillas for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Remove the quesadillas from the skillet and keep them warm while cooking the remaining two quesadillas. Slice each quesadilla in half and serve warm.
