It's the middle of a snowy Wisconsin winter but I didn't let that stop me from making this. I followed the directions with the foil pouch, but just slipped it in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Hubs always turns his nose up when I make zucchini, but not this time. It came out flavorful and crisp/tender, which he appreciated. (I tend to like mine on the soft, well-cooked side). I didn't use the cayenne pepper, preferring to substitute my seasoning of choice which in this case was just some sort of seasoning blend in the cupboard. This will be a repeat. It's nice to keep Hubs happy. Read More

So so good! I have never used cayenne pepper on my zucchini & squash before but that little bit of heat was really tasty. Read More

Baked in the oven at 375 in a covered pan until tender. If you don't like things spicy you better reduce the peppers! Read More

It came out more spicy than expected; but otherwise I loved this. Next time I'll use less cayenne pepper though. Read More

What a momma does to do for her squash loving kiddo;-) Recipe was easy to follow I didn't try myself because of allergies so I'm basing this off the 4 girls that would eat it. I did doubled the squash and zucchini and left everything else the same because I saw the amount of cayenne. While the older 2 girls said "love it love it" with the spice the 2 younger girls said HOT!! and grabbed for drinks. Will make again for them but will totally cut the cayenne down by half. Read More

This was such an easy recipe and the veggies tasted great! I skimped on the red pepper which made it perfect for my family. Summer grilling at its best! Read More

Used zucchini and some other type of Asian squash we thought we'd try. Forget what the name of it was. I'll check again at the store this week and then update my review. Couldn't get yellow squash and no other squash was going to slice up similar to the zucchini. It IS quite a bit hotter than you might expect but the flavor is very good. If you're not fond of spicy you might want to go easy on the cayenne the first time you try this. I grilled mine using the foil inside a veggie grilling basket for 30 minutes which was at least 10 minutes too long. It was overdone. Still tasted good but next time I'll set the timer for 20 minutes and test it. Thanks for this. Nice alternative to the usual grilled side. Read More
