These quesadillas make an easy lunch or appetizer for dinner. They can be served with sour cream and or salsa if desired, but I usually just eat them plain.

Spray or lightly oil frying pan over medium high heat.
Place tortilla in center of pan.
Sprinkle cheese on one half of tortilla staying about a half inch or so from edge.
Layer squash over cheese.
Sprinkle a bit more cheese over squash.
Fold tortilla over.
When bottom is lightly brown, turn over to brown other side if desired.
Remove from pan, cool slightly and slice.
