    When it is to hot and you don't want to cook inside try exiting outside to the grill. A wonderful blending of seasame and sage make this is a nice flavorful dish and perfect for those hot summer days.

      I was all out of brown rice, so used white instead. I also, reserved a bit of the marinade to microwave and drizzle over the rice. Otherwise, I made this exactly as described. Let me tell you, the flavor was magnificent, one of the best recipes I've ever taken from Recipezaar. Thanks, Paula, for this very special meal.

      I just finished making this and it was simply outstanding. I used extra green and yellow peppers instead of the squash, and also added some pineapple chunks. My taste buds are still humming!! This is definitely a new favorite. Thanks so much for posting.
