"Yummy! I put this on corn I grilled. I put it on the corn, then wrapped in foil and grilled."

"Loved this corn! It came out very tender in the microwave....foolproof. Parmesan gave it a nice subtle flavor, not overpowering."

"Simply delicious. I had a huge block of parnesan due to a friend's restaurant closure and this was a great way to utilize some of it. Usually we have boiled corn on the cob but this was soooooo much better and didn't have a huge pan to clean. I will make this recipe endless times. Corn is 6/$1.00 this week just in time for the 4th of July. Can't wait to try again! Thanks for the great recipe."
