  • Preheat the oven to 220C/ 200C Fan/Gas 7. Put the squash on a baking tray, drizzle over the oil and toss to evenly coat the squash. Cook in the oven for 15-20 mins until soft and starting to brown at the edges.

  • Top each tortilla with another one. Press together gently with your palm.

  • In a large pan, dry-fry the quesadillas one at a time, on low, for 2-3 mins on each side until golden brown on the outside and the cheese has melted inside.

  • Cut each quesadilla into quarters and serve straight away, with salsa on the side.
