Delicious! Made it tonight in our grill basket, without the fennel or mushrooms -only because I did not have them on hand. We used baby zucchini, uncut, which got a little overdone, but the fresh off the vine cherry tomatoes were a flavorful burst in the mouth. I grated a little pecorino romano over the top when I served, but kept everything else the same. Will definitely make again, adding fennel.
