~~~Confetti Corn Recipe~~~

 Hi everyone. The other night we went to dinner at a friends house and I was asked to bring a vegetable. This is a favorite of ours so I thought I would share the recipe with you too. It is very easy too. "TRY it, you'll like it", LOL!!!!
Here is the recipe for you:

Confetti Corn

Cook Time:
15 min
6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 small orange bell pepper, 1/2-inch diced
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Kernels cut from 5 ears yellow or white corn (4 cups)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons julienned fresh basil, minced fresh chives, and/or minced fresh parsley leaves


Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large saute pan. Add the onion and saute for 5 minutes, until the onion is soft. Stir in the bell pepper and saute for 2 more minutes.

Add the butter to the pan and allow it to melt. Over medium heat, add the corn, salt, and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes, until the corn just loses its starchiness. Season to taste, gently stir in the basil or other green herbs, and serve hot.

This is a recipe from Ina Garten. I will also share it at Yvonne's  and these other parties:

  1. Pinky, this looks wonderful! I love confetti corn. I don't think I've had with the basil added. I may have to try that!

  2. Pinky~ Your corn recipe sounds delicious! I'll have to try it with our basil while we still have some :)

  3. This looks great Pinky, I will have to try it! Hope the move forward is going well.
    happy fall!

  4. Hi Pinky, What a wonderful recipe. I love corn and I do adore Ina Garten. I will be giving this a try.

  5. Oh Pinky...that looks wonderful!!!...Basil?...never thought to put basil in corn...sounds really good!!!

  6. Hi there, Pinky! I have made corn very similar to this before, and it IS wonderful. Like the other ladies mentioned here, I've never considered putting basil in it, though, so that's something I think I'll try the next time around. Are we ever going to be able to buy corn at a decent price again, though????! Yikes! This year's drought sent the prices up, up, up! I'm stocking up on all the canned goods I can while they're on sale at the grocery because it's predicted the prices are going to REALLY go high. I never thought I'd be so happy to see rain in all my life! :-) I hope you have a really good weekend! Don't do anything I would do...unless you have bail money! :-)

  7. This looks good! I love corn. I'm sure it's good since it came from Ina Garten too. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  8. Ohhh, Pinky! This is a keeper! It looks so pretty ans well as sounding delicious!
    I know the movers come tomorrow. I'll be thinking and praying for you, dear friend!!!
    Lots of love!

  9. What a wonderful dish. I love all of the flavors. We have lots of basil that would be great in this. I think I would eat and eat and eat this dish!
