Does anyone know the name of this dish?

It is like a frittata or tortilla. Although potatoes were not the primary veg. I think it is Italian. It is layered with perhaps cheese(s), maybe some sliced salami or thin kinds of ham etc and definitely vegetables. Maybe it's baked in a foil covered cheese cake pan? Not sure if the layers were separated with egg custard or cheese. I think it may be served warm or room temp. I thought I saved the recipe. Guess not. Are these enough clues to identify this dish? Thanks.

They are enough clues to jar my memory and tell me that I have heard of it, too. Especially the serving at room temp part.
I hope someone comes in that can nail it for us, because I'll be Googling all day if they don't.

Tortilla de patatas - generally found served for tapas, so it's Spanish in origin

bingo- winner winner

I think these are all related.

Princess Fiona. Yes !! Thank you so much. A torta is what I am thinking I should make for a pre holiday brunch in a couple weeks. Now it's off to check the DC threads for a recipe.

Thank you all for your ideas.
