    great. I add butter, lemon juice & seasoning and can also do in oven. Found addition of onion a must for flavour.  -  02 Jan 2011


    I have done this recipe the following way: Spray heavy duty aluminum foil with cooking spray. Slice onions, cube new potatoes, add all or any of the following: carrot chunks, green pepper slices, broccoli, green beans, zucchini. Sprinkle some Dry Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix over all and add liquid Italian Dressing over all. Wrap up and place on grill, 15 minutes each side. Enjoy!  -  10 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have made a recipe very similar to this. I use red skin potatoes cut into small pieces. With fresh broccoli,fresh cauliflower, zucchini, sweet onions. I top with a bit of butter, and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, garlic and sprinkle a little Italian herb seasoning(Tones). I make huge veggie packets because I want lots left over. Carrots are really good in it too. My husband flips the packets halfway through cooking so to cook evenly on both sides. They get roasted and yummy. My favorite way to do veggies. I thought I could achieve the same thing by doing the packets in the oven but they don't come out as good. Definately grill! I bet it would be good with corn in it too, either small cut up ears of corn or kernels. Yum!  -  15 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
