This recipe has cornstarch in it, which may or may not be Core, but when it's divided among the servings, it's 0 points.

Do I understand this correctly? If I split this recipe up between 8 people to use all the servings, would this mean that there would be 0 points per person? If so, sounds like something I may want to have two days only one serving per day and get 0 points each day...hmmmmmmmm

I'm pretty sure she meant the cornstarch (which is NOT core so on the Core program you have to count the points) is 0 points.

If you are on points you would have to count the whole thing. Like javanilla said, works out at about 5 points per serve (still not too bad!)
