Three-cheese veggie quesadillas

My friend Kerry sent me a bunch of vegetarian recipes a few months ago. {Thanks, Kerry! Have any more?} Here's one of my favorites - it's delicious!

Three Cheese Quesadillas

{Serves 4}
1/2 c. grated part-skim mozzarella
1/2 c. crumbled feta cheese
2 t. crumbled blue cheese
1 t. olive oil
2 medium tomatoes, diced
6 scallions, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t. dried oregano
3 T. chopped cilantro
4 large flour tortillas

* Combine cheeses in a bow and set aside.
* Heat oil in nonstick pan over medium heat. Add tomatoes, scallions, garlic and oregano. Cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in cilantro.
* Remove veggies from pan and set aside.
* Add one tortilla to pan. Top 1/2 tortilla with 2 T. of the cheese and veggie mixture.
* Fold over top of tortilla and cook one minute per side, until cheese melts.
* Remove from pan and cover with foil to keep warm until cooking others.
* Cut tortilla into 3 wedges and serve warm.

Malayna and I went to Trader Joe's yesterday afternoon to pick up the above ingredients so we could have this for dinner last night. As we were checking out, Malayna decided to announce to the cashier {and anyone else who would listen}: "Someone has a baby in her belly! She does - my mommy!" The cashier looks at me and says, "Oh! Do you?" I probably replied a little too loudly that NO! I don't have a baby in my belly. She said, "Wishful thinking, huh?"

In a previous post, k had mentioned that her daughter - who is also 4 - has been talking about babies a lot lately, too. I may have to break it to Malayna soon that she's our one and only!

Anyone else have a little one with baby lust?
