Roasted Butternut Squash Quesadillas

Roasted Butternut Squash Quesadillas

Quesadillas are my favourite way to sneak more vegetables into my daily routine. Crunchy and filling, you can serve quesadillas with any of your favourite veggies, I like mine packed with butternut squash and spinach for extra fibre and vitamin C.
Sliced quesadillas taste delicious with my homemade dips and a cold glass of rosé.
