Wipe pan clean with paper towels. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese over each of 4 tortillas; top each with 1/2 cup mushroom mixture, 2 tablespoons cheese, and 1 tortilla. Lightly coat top tortillas with cooking spray. Heat pan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Place 1 quesadilla in pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until tortillas are lightly browned. Set aside and keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla into 6 wedges. Serve with pico de gallo and sour cream.
