Topped with crumbles of feta cheese and an irresistible roasted red pepper-olive salsa, this calorie-conscious meal has enough flavor to stretch from the Mediterranean Sea to the Gulf of Mexico.

Core tomato and cut into ¼" dice.

Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Make the Quesadillas
Lay tortillas out on a clean counter.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on half of each tortilla and add zucchini-onion mixture.
