    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400°; line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. 2
      Cut each squash half crosswise into ¼-inch slices.
    3. 3
      In a big bowl, toss the squash with the olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Place the squash on the prepared baking sheet; roast for 20-25 minutes, turning pieces over halfway through, or until the squash feels soft when pierced with a fork and the slices are slightly caramelized; set aside to cool slightly.
    5. 5
      In a small bowl, mash the butter and parmesan together.
    6. 6
      Spread the parmesan butter on 1 side of each tortilla and place them on a work surface, buttered side down.
    7. 7
      Place 6 slices of squash on the bottom half of each tortilla, followed by the Gruyere, blue cheese, and sage; fold the tortillas in half to enclose the filling.
    8. 8
      Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes; place 2 of the quesadillas in the skillet, cover, and cook for 2 minutes or until the undersides are golden brown and the cheese has begun to melt.
    9. 9
      Watch carefully, as the Parmesan butter can burn easily.
    10. 10
      Uncover, and turn the quesadillas with a spatula; cook for about 1 minute, or until the undersides are golden brown and the cheese has melted completely.
    11. 11
      Repeat with the remaining 2 quesadillas; cut in half and serve immediately.

      Absolutely loved it! It is a perfect winter appy. It paired well with both red wine and a chardonnay - which puts it on my list of appetizers to serve in Fall of 2007.
