Veggie Quesadillas – Simple & Flavorful



I’ve been known to get creative in the kitchen. Since starting Weight Watchers, I’ve had to find healthier cooking options, try new vegetables and foods to keep our meals healthy and exciting.

One of my favorite switch ups is I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. It tastes like butter, but is lower in fat and contains 0% artificial preservatives. 


My favorite variety is the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light. There is no loss in taste, it’s fresh, buttery and cooks perfectly. If light isn’t your thing, this buttery spread also comes in Original and Olive Oil.

To keep my creative juices flowing, I checked out the “Pick the Perfect Pair” recipe finder. Simply choose your main ingredient, chicken, eggs, vegetables, pork or fruit and the picker will give you an amazing new recipe to try out.


My ingredient of choice was vegetables and Veggie Quesadillas was the recipe given to me. Cheese, squash, zucchini all mixed in with delicious spices. This recipe was perfect for a healthy meal that isn’t lacking in flavor. 

What’s cool about this recipe is how versatile it is. Squash and zucchini not your thing? So many vegetables could be used in these Veggie Quesadillas and they would all taste great.
