Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Asiago or Fontina can be used in this recipe.


  1. Heat grill to medium.
  2. Combine the summer squash, zucchini, pesto and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Add 1/4 cup each asiago and fontina; toss to coat.
  3. Spoon vegetable mixture onto two greased double-thickness pieces of aluminum foil, each about 16 x 12 inches. Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons asiago and 2 tablespoons fontina. Fold foil into packets and seal tightly. Poke several small holes into each packet.
  4. Grill packets, covered, over medium heat for 15-18 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove packets from the grill. Let stand for 5 minutes. Take care when opening the foil; allow the steam to escape.
  5. Serve with remaining asiago and fontina.
