    Wow, this was so yummy!!! I made it for lunch today and could hardly stop munching away on it as it was so tasty! :) I especially enjoyed the combination of herbs used (though I had to sub some dried parsley and chives for the fresh ones). The corn and bell peppers added a lovely sweetness, which was complemented nicely by the earthy herbs. I will definitely make this again as it is so easy, quick, healthy and yummy! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, ellie_! Made and reviewed for Newest Zaar Tag Game Octobre 09.

    I agree with Fay Almeida. This is fabulous and a colourful dish. I to used fresh corn and then I cooked this recipe again with frozen corn. This recipe works well with either fresh or frozen corn. However, fresh corn definitely has the edge on this recipe but this is personal taste. A keeper especially for a colourful dish for Christmas Day. Thank you for posting.

    Great dish! I used 4 ears of fresh corn cut off the cob and dumped everything in the skillet together at once. It came out perfect!

    Nice tasty way to dress up a bag of frozen corn. Very colorful. I served this with grilled chicken.

    This was fabulous Ellie! I used the butter only at the start and used fresh cornlets (don't get frozen) cilantro instead of the parsley and the green stalks of spring onions instead of the celery (both parsley and celery are difficult to obtain)and dried basil and oregano. I also added a carrot towards the end and omitted the water. We really enjoyed this. It looked very appetising and colourful too. Thanks :) Fay


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
