You MUST make these!! They are awesome and will impress everyone. My picky in-laws (but I don't like goat cheese..) loved them, my 13 year-old son (mom, when can we have those grilled vegetables again?...). Very easy to substitute depending on what veggies you have on hand. Have made this 5 times, here are my suggestions: slice the onion THICK or they will get lost. add zucchini (quartered lengthwise) and/or asparagus, eggplant is good also. MOST IMPORTANT: PUT SOME BALSAMIC IN YOUR MARINADE, THEN ADD GOOD/HIGH QUALITY BALSAMIC TO SOME OF THE REMAINING MARINADE TO DRIZZLE ON THE GRILLED VEGGIES. The avacado is optional but the goat cheese and FRESH basil are a must. Addistional suggestion: on the chance that you have leftover veggies, cut them up and add to sauteed onion and garlic, throw in a can of diced tomatoes and some grilled, sliced chicken sausage. Simmer to desired consistancy and serve over pasta with additional cheese. I now make extra veggies every time, just so we can have the pasta. Did I mention I like this receipe :)

Just didn't care for it. I ended up blending it all, added Italian sausage, a can of tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, and herbs. Put it on rigatoni.

Absolutely amazing! Like another said, I'm dreaming of the next time I have this! I made the recipe exactly as above except I mistakenly added the balsamic vinegar while marinating instead of after grilling - but it was so good I don't think I'd try it the original way. We used the suggested ingredients, plus zucchini (quartered lengthwise), yellow bell pepper, and eggplant sliced into 1/2" rounds, all good. The red onion is a must, it is a wonderful flavor complement to the other veggies. My suggestion, make a lot, especially if you're feeding more than 3 or 4 people - it'll be a hit.

I'd give this 10 stars if I could! This is BY FAR the best recipe for grilled veggies I have ever tried! Hubby agrees too! I followed the recipe exactly as written, except that I used more cayenne (probably around 1/4 tsp - even that wasn't spicy). For the grill seasoning I used Montreal Steak Spice and used slightly less than called for. I'm already dreaming of the next time I can have this! I wouldn't change a thing! I love the sweetness of the peppers combined with the freshness from the basil and creamy goat cheese and avocado. This is the kind of recipe that will thoroughly impress guests.

I made this dish, and frankly, I believe it to be the best vegetable dish I have ever wife thought so as well. I used 6 cloves of garlic...and more basil, After grilling, I put it in the oven on 300 for 5 minutes, just to make sure it was hot. Paired it with a Grilled Flank Steak.....Bon Appetite....

We grill veggies a lot, but last night I wanted something different and a little more special--I was not disappointed with this recipe. I used 3 mushroom caps halved, two red bell peppers quartered about 3/4 of a medium red onion, 8 or so asparagus stalks and a large avocado. Just about perfect for 4 large helpings. I may have not used the full amount of goat's cheese, but rather sprinkled it over the platter of vegetables until I was satisfied with the presentation. Also, we grilled the veggies for about 15 minutes on the top shelf of the grill--they would have been underdone at 5 min.

This was fabulous! Made it exactly as posted and wouldn't make it any other way. We had leftovers that we refrigerated and my husband put on a salad the next day. He said it tasted even better! The fourth time we made it (yes, it's that good! I only found the recipe a month ago and we've had it 4 times already!), my step son had the leftovers in an omelet and he said it was delicious! Thank you for such an excellent recipe.

This is an incredible recipe! I used zucchini, yellow squash, green & red pepers, red onion and asparagus. As some had suggested .. I used fresh basil and included the balsamic vinegar in the marinade. Sooo yummy!
