We have so much squash in the summer, but we never tire of this recipe. We often leave the sausage out of the foil packets and just serve the veggies as a side dish. Even people who don't usually like zucchini enjoy it. —Kay Bish, Thompsonville, Illinois

"I wish it would give instructions for doing in the oven. Too much work lighting up a grill just for this recipe."

"When I first saw this recipe it was summer and I tried it. Great idea, great taste and great clean up idea :) However, since I first saw it I have made the same thing many times, no matter the season. I do vary the vegetables depending on what looks best at the store. Sometimes I add onion, sometimes a sweet potato cut in smaller bites, always peppers of varying colors. Sometimes we don't even have meat; just all kinds of veggies. Great recipe turns into lots of different meals."

"My family loves this recipe. It's always a big hit. I sometimes use andouille sausage for the people who like spicy food."

"when I make these packets with veggies, I always add a couple ice cubes for moisture and less butter/use PAM to spray my foil. I do turn mine, but double wrap the veggies and roll the edges together so they do not leak. Make these often during the summer months - great with or without the sausage. ..also use Kielbasa"

"I make a recipe similar to this and spray the foil with Pam first. Then I can use less butter, but it still tastes great and doesn't stick to the regular foil."

"This was very good. I did use the nonstick foil and it was no problem."
