Fresh and Easy: Veggie Quesadillas Recipe

Have you ever taken a bite of food and instantly want to try and make your own?  That’s how I felt when Brad and I snacked on some incredible Veggie Quesadillas from Avec Moi. (It’s a take-out place for home cooked meals here in Indy. WIN!)  I attended a baby celebration for Moosh in Indy that Emily and Shireen so graciously hosted and they sent us home with to-go boxes.  How fun is that?

    Yum! I make my veggie quesadillas with red pepper, green pepper, and onion. And sometimes I’m lazy and bake them in the oven instead of in a skillet. Either way? Delish!!
