Silky Creamy Corn Pasta

Healthy Fact of the Day

Sweet corn is a good source of fiber and contains vitamins B and C, as well as minerals like magnesium and potassium. It also provides antioxidants that support eye health.

Ingredients

 

  • 1 lb pasta (such as fettuccine or linguine)
  • 4 ears fresh corn, kernels removed (about 3 cups)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)

 

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook pasta according to package instructions until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water before draining.

  2. While pasta cooks, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for 1 minute until fragrant.

  3. Add corn kernels to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes until tender.

  4. Transfer half of the corn mixture to a blender. Add 1/4 cup of the reserved pasta water and blend until smooth.

  5. Return the blended corn to the skillet with the remaining corn. Add heavy cream and bring to a simmer.

  6. Add the cooked pasta to the skillet, along with the butter and Parmesan cheese. Toss everything together, adding more pasta water as needed to create a silky sauce.

  7. Stir in torn basil leaves and season with salt and black pepper to taste.

  8. Serve hot, garnished with additional Parmesan cheese, basil, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes if desired.
