      Warm oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in spinach and cook, stirring, until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Transfer to a bowl and stir in cheese and olives.

      Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook quesadillas one at a time in skillet, turning once, until golden on both sides and cheese is melted, about 6 minutes total for each. Serve immediately.

    notes

    • Cost per serving: $1.82
    • Shake it off. Don’t add any salt to the vegetables when sautéing them. The olives and feta are both salty enough on their own. Offer salsa on the side.
    • Change cheeses. Try these easy quesadillas with Monterey Jack or Cheddar.
    • Build it up. Sautéed mushrooms add more vitamins and a hearty meatiness to this dish. Slice button or cremini mushrooms and sauté them before the onions. Be sure to keep sautéing until mushrooms release their liquid, which takes about 7 minute.
    • Make it healthier. Use whole-grain tortillas to add nutrients to these family-pleasing quesadillas.
