This tasty side dish is seasoned with herbs and butter. Just tuck the foil packet beside any meat you happen to be grilling.—Lucy Meyring, Walden, Colorado

I made this to use up my bumper crop of cherry tomatoes. Very good, light flavor. I, too, increased the amount of garlic...garlic lover, can't help it :)

Very good, I increased the garlic to about 5 cloves.
