I am always looking for recipes that will encourage students to eat vegetables and This one has been a huge success. You can also use other vegetables, such as mushrooms, eggplant, asparagus and broccoli. Just remember to roast your vegetables before making the quesadillas.—Kathy Carlan, Canton, Georgia

- 1 medium zucchini, quartered and sliced

- In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Transfer to a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 425° for 24-28 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
