"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."

"I used this and liked it. I made mine on the stovetop. After draining the corn I added the ingredients to the pan on low and stuck the corn back in for five or ten minutes. I didn't even need extra butter at the table!"
