This was an easy, tasty way to use up some squash. We enjoyed this recipe for lunch today. We used the grill basket, which worked well. The only modification we made was to substitute linguine for fettucine. Thanks for posting.

This was absolutely wonderful. My squash and zucchini is just coming in the garden and I grilled both together to make this dish. Love the marinade...especially the garlic. Since I have everything growing in the garden I will make this dish again and again. Thanks! Made for ZWT7.

Oh, Mikekey, that's truly a lovely dish. I hate I had to make one deviation - no parsley (store was out). But the basil, the grilled squash, the parm - heaven in a pasta bowl. This will definitely be devoured this and future summers.
