    I took this idea and used triple the corn and used a cup of sliced scallions in the sauté. Also seasoned with some fresh cracked pepper.

    This was so delicious! My family loved it and it was so easy. Make sure you buy fresh corn in season.

    Used larger tomatoes( the vine ones that have no taste raw, but are delicious cooked) and sauteed them first with a little fresh gartic ntil they were mushy, and then I added the corn and fresh basil and cooked for 3-5 minutes more.

    This was very good... Used canned diced tomatoes since that's what I had on hand, and added some fresh garlic... Might add some sliced green onion next time...
