Zucchini, Olive, and Cheese Quesadillas

    What a fabulous break from the ordinary Mexican quesadilla! I subbed regular olives for the Kalamata and tomato-and-basil FF feta for the regular, and it was amazing. I will be making this again and again.

    These were very tasty -- lots of bold mediterranean flavors. I served them with rotisserie chicken and fresh pineapple. While they don't take too long, it kind of seems like a long time as compared to traditional bean and cheese quesadillas. I typically wouldn't factor in sauteeing time for quesadillas!

    We love this. My husband doesn't like olives, so I don't put those in.... but the shredded zucchini is great.

    This recipe was delicious! Even my picky eater daughter gave it a five star. I replaced the diced tomatoes with diced tomatoes with green chilies as we like a little more heat in our meals, and I used just a little more cheese. I served this with a simple mixed green salad with tomato slices. I will be making this again and again!

    This was delicious - I did make a few tweaks. I ended up doubling the amount of zucchini. I'm also not too crazy about kalamata olives but used them anyway and they were just right. I also used pre-shredded five cheese mix. Would definitely make again!

    Totally satisfying! When assembling, I thought there was too little cheese, but the finished product was perfect. Made per recipe but substituted regular (not fat free) whole wheat tortillas. Served with baby limas. My only comment is that you really couldn't feed more than two to three people with two of these (not four).

    WOW!! This recipe is a definite keeper!! I just made it last night for my husband and I we both totally enjoyed!! Very easy and simple to prepare. We will definitely make it again. I put in a bit more garlic but not to much more to overdue things. I really wouldn't change anything about the recipe even if you not a fan of olives just put a little less in yours that is all. That is what I did and still enjoyed it.

    I don't see how this recipe is rated 5 stars; it was mediocre at best. I'm not sure the zucchini pairs well w/the olives - giving it a funky taste that was somewhat masked by the feta cheese. I've yet to make a 5-star recipe that wasn't so, so I was pretty disappointed.

    Easy and delicious. I made this for lunch today and even with my having to substitute arabic pita for the tortillas I didn't have, it was still outstanding. Looking forward to making it again.

    I made this exactly as the recipe states, and it was excellent! Mexican and Mediterranean are the favorite cuisines in our household, so to have the two sort of combined was really fun! The balance of flavors is really tasty, and I'd definitely make this again. I served it with a simple chopped salad of green leaf lettuce, Roma tomatoes, English cucumbers and crumbled feta, with homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Great meal!

    Really good! Whole wheat tortillas and I grated the zucchini instead of shredding it. Will make again.

    I made it exactly as the recipe specified and it was delicious. It tastes really fresh and the feta gives it just the right amount of punch.

    This was delicious and easy. I used fresh garlic and tomatoes instead of the bottled and canned that the recipe asked for. It was much tastier and only added a few extra minutes. I seasoned the tomatoes with salt and pepper and I also used wine soaked olives instead of canned in water which made a huge difference in flavor

    Simple weeknight meal idea. Loved the flavor and dipped in salsa! Had a slight problem flipping tortillas with so much filling, but still deliciou I changed up the cheese a bit and added more and still loved.

    These quesadillas are so good they almost defy description. A perfect blend of cheese, salty olives, and fresh zucchini. Will make again and again. Served with refried beans on the side.
