Creamed Corn

I was surprised that this super healthy version of creamed corn tasted as good as it did. The Mr. LOVES it and so do I. It is fast to make with little prep, perfect for a weekday side dish. I found this delicious recipe in Weight Watchers PointsPlus Best Darn Food Ever Cookbook. This is another one of my favorite cookbooks, so many low point dishes in there!

Serves 6 (2/3 cup per serving)
2 tsp unsalted butter
1 1/2 tsp flour
2 cups fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels 
1/2 small red pepper, cut into 1/4 inch dice
1/2 small green pepper, cut into 1/4 inch dice
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2/3 cup low-fat (1%) milk

Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook, whisking constantly, 1 min. Stir in corn, red and green bell pepper, cornstarch, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, 4 mins. Gradually add milk and simmer, stirring, until mixture bubbles and thickens and corn in tender, about 3 mins or longer.
