4 Stars, the zucchini and bell peppers cooked to perfection, and the balsamic vinaigrette was not overly sweet. The chopped basil was brown at the edges from my chopping, but I like fresh basil taste as an accent. I use salad dressings sparingly, so I had twice as much vinaigrette as needed. Made 1/2 recipe in an 8x8 casserole dish, which was the perfect size. The photo shows 2 servings' worth of the recipe, enough for my veggie loving appetite. Thanks for posting.
