Total time: 
  • 1 zucchini, in ½ inch slices
  • 1 red bell pepper, halved
  • 1 green bell pepper, halved
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, halved
  • 1 sweet onion, halved
  • 8 oz white mushrooms
  • 8 oz mixed mushrooms (e.g. shiitake, crimini or portabella caps)
  • 8 oz feta cheese, crumbled

For the Chipotle Cream Sauce:
