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.

Too much lemon, red pepper and black pepper. I will not make this again.

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

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.

got okay from family, we added Parmesan cheese at the table and that made it a little better. If I make it again would add grated onion, and grill longer than 30 minutes.

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

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