Harvest Pasta

This is the kind of pasta dish that can be as pasta-heavy or as pasta-light as you like.  Really, it’s just a matter of what you choose to toss in.  Obviously the corn makes for a wonderful summer touch, but as long as you keep the herb and tomato base, anything goes!

Ingredients

  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 4 ears of corn, boiled and sliced from cob
  • 1 bunch parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Splash lemon juice
  • 1 box shaped pasta of your choice (do not use spaghetti or angel hair)
  • 1/2 cup pasta cooking water, reserved

Instructions

  • In large bowl, combine tomatoes, corn, parsley, green onions, olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper.  Toss to combine, cover and refrigerate
  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.  Cook pasta according to box instructions.  As pasta nears completion, remove one ladle-full of water (approximately 1/2 c) from pot and pour into bowl containing tomato and corn mixture.  Stir
  • Drain pasta, pour into bowl containing tomato and corn mixture.  Drizzle with olive oil and toss to incorporate into sauce
  • Top with parmesan cheese to taste and serve
