    Good. I like mine with smoked sausage, but it's hard to keep lit.

    This recipe is pretty tasty. I did add more ranch and I used elbow macaroni pasta. I love the fresh veggies! Throw the corn on the grill with some shrimp. How could anyone not like?

    Too dry, added more dressing, just didn't turn out right. Had to toss it.
