Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the cheese over each of 5 tortillas and top with the remaining tortillas, making "sandwiches." In a large skillet, heat 1/2 teaspoon oil over medium heat. Place 1 tortilla sandwich in the skillet at a time and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, turning halfway through the cooking. Remove to a covered platter and repeat with the remaining sandwiches. Cut each finished quesadilla into 4 wedges and serve. NOTE: I like to serve these with sour cream, salsa, and sliced scallions. And for added cheese flavor, after turning the quesadillas, I brush the top of each one with an additional 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil then sprinkle with a teaspoon of grated Parmesan cheese. NOTES : 5 melts
