This quick and easy side dish is going to be amazing with grilled chicken or hamburgers this summer. The combination of flavors from the garlic, basil, and cheese blend well with the roasted zucchini and squash. Crushed red pepper adds a nice little kick of spice. This is going to be a big hit at any cookout. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
