Tasty! I just used Kraft Roasted Red Pepper Italian to grill some crookneck squash fresh from my garden. Hubby is so happy when I grill - I only do the simple stuff, veggies.

I have made this and my kids love it. I used the "Kraft Light Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing". I also use the other dressing from Kraft Light house to marinate meats with. Delish.
