These spicy kabobs get their flavor from a simple marinade featuring peanut butter, soy sauce and steak sauce. The marinade also is great with poultry, beef or pork.
1 large red bell pepper
2 large zucchini
12 oz. large mushrooms
1/4 c. steak sauce
3 T. peanut butter
1 T. soy sauce
Cut the red pepper into 12 1-inch pieces. Cut the zucchini crosswise into 12 1/2-inch slices.
In a large resealable bag, combine the steak sauce, peanut butter and soy sauce. Seal the bag and shake well to mix. Open the bag and add the pepper, zucchini and mushrooms. Reseal and shake to coat the vegetables. Allow to stand for 15 minutes.
Preheat the grill. Alternately thread the marinated vegetables onto 4 large metal skewers. Brush them with any remaining marinade. Grill the kabobs over medium-low heat for 12-14 minutes, turning once, until they are tender and browned.
This simple recipe takes advantage of the Basic Grilled Veggies found earlier in this article. Simply save half of your veggies and this one practically makes itself.

1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil

In a large bowl, combine the drained pasta, chopped vegetables and feta cheese. Add the dressing and toss to coat.

Place the Boboli crust on a pizza pan. Spread the pesto evenly over the crust. Arrange the grilled veggies and diced tomato over the pesto -- slicing any veggies that require it. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the veggies.
