Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time10 minutes
Servings - 24 triangles


  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Handful fresh basil leaves
  • Handful fresh curled parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Large handful cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 red pepper, grilled, then diced
  • 1 large summer squash, grilled, then diced
  • 8 soft taco size tortillas


  • Place the cheeses, the chopped basil and parsley and the crushed garlic into a large mixing bowl.(I think these would be really good with mozzarella, but I was all out.)
  • Quarter the cherry tomatoes and toss into the mixing bowl with the cheese. Mix her up.
  • Meanwhile…fire up the grill and grill the red pepper slices and the squash slices. Then dice.
  • Toss the diced grilled squash and diced grilled red pepper in with the cheese mixture.
  • Spoon the mixture into the the tortillas. Fold over, or cover 1 tortilla with the mixture and top with another tortilla.
    However you like…in the end, it won’t matter how you use the mixture in the tortilla. It’s really about the ooey-gooey goodness that will result from grilling the quesadilla.
  • Place the tortillas on the grill for a few minutes on each side, or until the cheese is oozing out the sides of the tortillas…as sure sign they are ready for consumption.
  • Let cool and cut grilled quesadillas into little triangles.
  • Serve Summer Squash Quesadillas as an appetizer or main meal.
