Fresh corn and basil make this dish taste like summer. I think it's a good one for bringing to picnics or gatherings, but it's great alongside any entree for weeknight dinners! —Sally Maloney, Dallas, Georgia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 26, 2016

"I was really surprised how good it was. Next time I'll add either chicken or poached salmon to make it a full meal. I put in 4 tbsp of olive oil by mistake instead of 4 tsp but didn't hurt it any. Next time I'll also add some salt."

MY REVIEW

"This is an excellent dish. I added 1/4 tsp. salt to the dish as it seemed a little bland. My husband and a dinner guest raved about it."

"Very good and very simple to make. Needed a little more flavor for my family, so added an extra 1/2 tsp. of salt and a little more Parmesan. Will make again."

"Like juicyfruit007, I also recommend this with grilled corn cut off the cob. It's a great dish for summer!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 28, 2015

"I would say this was fine, but just didn't "wow" me. My husband begrudgingly ate it, but said he wouldn't want to have it again. Overall it was easy to make and I like that it is healthy and low in sodium. I'm not sure if I'll make it again since Mr. Picky will be complaining about it. For non-vegetarians, I think some crumbled bacon would be a nice addition."
