Recipe by Bergy
This is such an attractive holiday dish. Lovely presentation. Parmesan on top browned tastes great but it detracts from the red, green and yellow colors. Looks good on a hot buffet

This was a hit for us on Thanksgiving. I prepared it as directed, but used skim milk in the sauce and didn't use the bacon. I may have overcooked them because I was trying to juggle oven space, but the combination of tomatoes and corn was really nice. I paired these with Bergy's peas n peppers recipe (number 44975, see my review on that one too) and the platter was really pretty with all the fall colors. Thanks for sharing!
