Corn Pasta with Fresh Summer Corn, Tomatoes, and Chives


Right now corn and tomatoes are in prime peak at the farmers markets, and priced well.  I love corn on the cob, but it does a number on my teeth.  I thought why not cut the corn kernels off the cobb and saute them with my favorite corn pasta.  Corn on corn.  Top it off with some summer tomatoes (anything kind(s) that appeal to you) and chives to freshen it up and make it aromatic.  This dish is super light and easy to make.  Some protein toppers to add in to compliment this dish well would be grilled chicken or shrimp, feta cheese, any fresh crumbly cheese.  And for pasta - any kind will work, but I'm partial to my favorite Italian gluten-free corn pasta, Le Veneziane.

Corn Pasta with Fresh Summer Corn, Tomatoes, and Chives
Ingredients:
  • Olive oil, 2 tablespoons
  • Corn kernels, cut from 3-4 ears of fresh corn
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Tomatoes, about 1/2 pound, cut into medium dice (half or quartered if using cherry tomatoes)
  • Corn Pasta Fettucce, 1 package/250 grams
  • Fresh Chives, handful, chopped fine
Directions:
  1. Using a large sauce pan, bring salted water to a boil for the pasta.  Drop the pasta and stir to ensure it doesn't stick together.
  2. In a large skillet, heat up oil over low-medium heat.  Saute the corn kernels with stirring for about 5 minutes.
  3. Drain the pasta and immediately add to skillet with corn.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Top with tomatoes and chives.  Enjoy immediately.

Makes 4 servings.
