Kabobs, Italian "Pasta" Salad, and Stuffed Mushrooms

The pineapple sauce and stuffed mushrooms are inspired by This is a perfect meal when you are in the mood for bbq. One of my favorite meals my mom used to make was pasta salad, now I have a healthier raw version! The stuffed mushrooms taste just like the ones out of the oven except more flavor and the marinated zucchini, mushrooms, red bell peppers, and pineapple had more flavor then I could imagine!
