Notes

*To grill vegetables, place tomatoes, pepper, onion and garlic in a fine-mesh grill basket; coat with cooking spray (off heat). Place basket on hot grill and cook until lightly browned and tomatoes are pulpy, about 4 to 6 minutes per side. Remove basket from grill and cool. Slip skins off tomatoes with your fingers; peel garlic clove with your hands or a knife (you may have to make an 'X' in the garlic peel with a knife first). To oven-roast vegetables, preheat oven to 425°F. Place tomatoes, pepper, onion and garlic on a baking sheet; coat with olive oil-flavoured cooking spray. Roast vegetables until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Slip skins off tomatoes with your fingers; peel garlic clove. Turn this recipe into an entrée by stirring in 2 cups of grilled, chopped chicken breast or grilled, chopped shrimp before serving (will affect SmartPoints® values).
