SO HOW'D IT GO?

This is a really good recipe. I doubled the recipe and kept layering until I used all the vegetables I had. I was afraid it would be dry, but it was delicious! I'm tempted to try adding red wine next time I make this. When I would eat it I kept thinking it would be perfect with kind of a red wine sauce type thing.

The shallot and the oregano aren't mentioned in the recipe, but I baked the shallot with the squash and added it with the layer of mushrooms. The oregano isn't necessary and I overdid it with the red pepper flakes, which is a first for me. If I use red wine next time, I might use thyme.
