Spray a frying pan with oil.  Heat over medium heat and place 1 tortilla in the pan.  Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese over tortilla.  Top with another tortilla, spray top with oil.  Cook, pressing down firmly with a spatula, for 1-2 mins or until base is golden.  Place a plate over frying pan and turn over quesadilla.  Slide quesadilla, uncooked side down into pan.  Cook for 1-2 mins or until golden.  Transfer to plate, repeat with remaining tortillas and cheese.
