These Mediterranean Quesadillas were one of those dinners that I threw together one day out of leftovers.
There was show on years ago on Food Network called Doorknock Dinners.
The guy would randomly show up at a house and make a fabulous dinner with whatever the people already had.
I seriously could do that gig because I love the challenge of coming up with creative ways to use leftovers.
Sorry…squirrel moment…back to these cheesy and delicious Mediterranean Quesadillas 🙂
I had some tortillas, half a jar of sun dried tomatoes packed in oil, some pesto, mozzarella and feta cheese.
Yes, all leftovers from other dishes this past week.
How to Make Mediterranean Quesadillas
In my large skillet over medium heat I poured some of the sun dried tomato oil straight from the jar.
Then lay a large tortilla flat.
On one side of the tortilla I piled on some pesto, both cheeses, and sliced sun dried tomatoes.
Next just fold the empty side of the tortilla over top of the side with the yumminess.
Let this cook a few minutes.
Then carefully flip and let the other side cook for a few minutes.
The quesadillas could also be made in the oven or even if you have one of those fancy quesadilla makers.
I have used those quesadilla makers before, but I find I can never fit in enough filling.
Maybe I’m just a piggie who likes a super stuffed quesadilla…if so, I’m okay with that 😉
Just slice up Mediterranean Quesadillas and serve 🙂
This version is vegetarian, but you could add some chicken or shrimp to add a little protein if you’d like 🙂

Making a huge batch of fresh Homemade Basil Pesto from our basil plants around the middle to end of summer is something my kids and I enjoy doing.
We then freeze it in small batches to use throughout the year in yummy dishes like these.
See…even the teen gets involved 🙂
