  • 4Servings


  • 1 lb. asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 4-inch lengths (about 16 spears)
  • 12 oz. small new red potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices (about 10 potatoes)
  • 2 medium-size zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
  • 8 oz. baby carrots
  • 1 1/4 cups grape tomatoes
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 5 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. prepared pesto
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (4 oz.)


Place large baking sheet in oven, and preheat to 450F. Cut 4 20-inch sheets of heavy-duty foil. Combine all ingredients except cheese in large bowl. Toss to coat, and season with salt and pepper.

Divide vegetable mixture among foil sheets. Sprinkle cheese over top. Fold foil over, and crimp edges to seal.

Arrange packets in single layer on heated baking sheet. Reduce oven to 400F. Bake 20 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. (Pierce packet with knife to test veggies.) Let stand 5 minutes.

To serve: Place packets on plates, slit tops, and fold back foil.
