Roast the vegetables by spreading the cubed vegetables on a large rimmed baking sheet (or two baking sheets). Toss with enough olive oil to lightly coat. Season generously with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Roast in preheated 400 F oven for 20-30 minutes, until golden and tender. Remove from the oven and set aside.2. To assemble the enchiladas, warm tortillas in the microwave until pliable. Spread a thin layer of salsa in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Roll a portion of the roasted vegetables into each tortilla (with a little cheese if you wish) and place in the baking dish. Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas and sprinkle with several handfuls of cheese.3. Bake in preheated 400 F oven for 10 minutes, until the enchiladas are heated through and the cheese is golden brown and bubbling. Garnish with onion and cilantro and serve.
