Roasted Squash and Black Bean Quesadillas

I seem to be on a roasting kick – Roasted Squash Soup with Cayenne Pepper, Roasted Tomato Salsa and now Roasted Squash and Black Bean Quesadillas. Oven roasting vegetables brings out concentrated, sweet and caramelized flavors; it lends itself especially well to fall and winter vegetables like winter squash, root vegetables, or brassicas (cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage). This is an easy, healthy vegetarian recipe that doesn’t require any special techniques or equipment. It packs a lot of flavor and the ooey, gooey filling is warm and comforting on a crisp fall night.

Serve these with sour cream, chopped fresh cilantro and Roasted Tomato Salsa.
