  11. I love corn casseroles. Have never had one with ricotta and basil--I like the idea of basil. Corn & basil...a little wink back to summer. And of course a cheesy topping can't be beat!
    Thank you for linking!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  12. Evelyn, Happy Thanksgiving. I linked up a corn dish as well - but with an Indian twist. Cheers
