I've been working on this recipe for awhile to adjust it to my taste. I think I've finally gotten it right! I love to make this in the summer for a great light dinner on the patio.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat skillet with 1 tbs butter over medium-high heat.
  2. Add garlic and onion; saute about 2 minutes.
  3. Add bell pepper and saute about 5 minutes.
  4. Add corn and saute about 3 minutes.
  5. Add wine, broth, salt and pepper and simmer until most of the liquid is evaporated, about 4 minutes. Remove vegetable mixture from pan and place on serving plates; cover to keep warm.

This is a great, light recipe. The orange bell pepper and corn mixed with wine make for such a nice, light sweet flavor. Quick and healthy dinner. Thanks, Bippie!
