Cheese Tortellini with Tomatoes and Corn

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 along with any side dish for a weeknight dinner! —Sally Maloney, Dallas, Georgia

    Great! I cooked the cook in a sauce pan with butter letting it brown (didn't add to pasta). Otherwise I followed the recipe and it was great! My kid gave it a thumbs up and asked for it again the next night!

    I am having this for lunch right now and my taste buds are super excited about it. I love this and will be making it more often!!! It got a 4 Star from me only because I think there is to much pepper, next time I will not add the stated amount of pepper.

    Like some of the other reviews, I also added additional salt and parmesan. I also threw in some raw spinach at the end to give more color to the dish. I liked it, but family thought it really lacked.

    Easy. Delicious side. I added some salt and pepper at the end.

    Great summertime dish as you can eat it cold, too. I also added some bacon to boost the flavor a bit. Use fresh basil - it makes all the difference!
