Herbed Summer Squash and Potato Torte with Parmesan

Recipe by yooper

An unsual side dish or main dish for a light luncheon. I imagine you can substitute zucchini for the yellow crookneck squash.

I actually found this recipe on another website and was going to post it on zaar, but did a quick search and here it is! Now I have the nutritional info! Anyhow--this is a fantastic recipe...only a couple suggestions--up the cheese by about 1/2 cup and you'll probably need a full pound of yellow squash. Oh, and I just had this for lunch--it reheats so well!
