From Katie Workman's Mom 100 Cookbook a recipe for an easy to throw together tortilla casserole. This is one of those recipes where you can substitute things you have or like for things you don't have or don't like. The basic recipe is vegetarian but you can kick it up with left over taco meat, or any cooked meat you have left over.
This recipe can be made with any of your favorite vegetables but in this variation we use 3 types of squash. The Cilantro Pesto brings out the flavor. Based on a recipe by Fine Cooking Magazine.
