  1. Tried this dish. Wanted to share few problems I ran into. Zucchini if tossed in heat can make the vegetables soggy. Also tomatoes if seeded and not tossed much in heat will retain its texture. Grilling veggies separately will be good as different veggies have different cook time. Beginners be careful!
