Caprese Quesadilla

Quesadillas rock my world.

They are such a simple and tasty meal option.  They take almost no time, and can be incredibly delicious.  Since my garden is in full production as the growing year  is starting to draw to a close, I have  plenty of delicious fresh produce to find creative uses for.

Enter the Caprese Quesadilla.  A delicious fusion of some of my favorite things:  Basil.  Cheese.  Trim Healthy Mama.  Yes, it is a lunch made in heaven.  Not doing the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle?  Just use regular whole wheat quesadillas!

Let’s get to it, shall we?
