  • 2 large red or yellow bell peppers, cut lengthwise into quarters
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise in half
  • 1 medium yellow squash, cut lengthwise in half
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup lightly packed chopped fresh basil
  • Salt and ground black pepper
Marinade:
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
