You're probably noticing my family likes zucchini!! This is the first time we tried this one and it was a total hit at my house. My 9-year-old even had seconds. Not many kids take seconds on vegetables!
What I love about this dish is it tastes amazing, it's healthy, it doesn't take a lot of ingredients and most of all, it's quick and easy to make. That is a win win in my book! Try it. Hopefully it's a hit at your house too!
The tomato salad is something my husband came up with. It's easy and it tastes really good!! Do you notice the theme of these recipes? A lot of them are easy and that is what my life needs right now. I'm sure you all are in the same boat. Life is just crazy busy sometimes!
Side note: The Quesadilla filling was left over from the extra filling I had from the stuffed peppers from last week’s recipe. I love being able to make new dishes from leftovers and what's best is it doesn't feel like leftovers.
HHM note: Zucchini, tomatoes, Feta (on lettuce salad) and salad mix can all be bought at HHM.
