    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.

    Sounds yummy. I don't have a grill though. Would they taste as good in the oven?
