"Haven't had a chance to try this but would add a few chopped basil leaves, olive oil and no vinegar. Then would use as an on the go stuffing for pita. Sounds good to me."

"I substituted the peppers for yellow squash and zucchini, cut into thick pieces. I was too busy to mix the marinade, so I just poured a vinaigrette dressing over the veggies and sealed and grilled. I also substituted whole cherry tomatoes, instead of slicing. I would imagine you can use this recipe in the microwave without the foil pocket. Use a dish, cover and vent it for around 7 minutes."

"Probably 15 - 20 minutes in a 375 ° oven.  Just play around with time.  Cooking on the grill, when something is tightly sealed in foil adds NO FLAVOR....it is ONLY a convenience."
