MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2014

The amount of time suggested was way too long. The vegetables ended up very mushy and rather bland. I may try again and cook in the microwave as others have suggested or on the grill or 20 - 25 minutes.

MY REVIEW

I received this recipe via Facebook earlier today and had to try it out tonight. I used halved cherry tomatoes because I thought they'd hold up a little better during cooking. I could have grilled them 25 minutes and they would have been perfect. Tasty, easy, high on flavor and low on calories and carbs. I will definitely make this again. This would be a great side dish for those who are diabetic or who are counting calories.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 2, 2011

I loved this, but my preferred method of cooking was in the microwave, and then sprinkling shredded parmesan cheese on top. I also used large slices/chunks of squash, rather than the thin slices because I don't like mushy veggies. They were a little mushy/soft from grilling, but cooked in the microwave, they were PERFECT!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 2, 2011

I made a large batch of this; cooked one batch on the grill as the recipe calls for - the squash was quite soft and over done but still quite tasty! The second batch I microwaved on my "fresh vegetable" setting and then topped with shredded parmesan cheese - OUTSTANDING!!! The veggies were perfect - tender but not mushy in the least and the flavor was fantastic.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 24, 2010

This is one of my favorite go-to vegetable recipes. Everyone loves it. I put the packet on the grill or in the oven. Try substituting some crumbled Feta cheese for the Parmesan and use Kalamata olives -- it's great!
