Recipe of Creamy Corn Pasta with Basil

  1. 1. Recipe of Creamy Corn Pasta With Basil The choice of ingredients in making a delicious pasta sauce has always been a challenge before the advent on Italian chefs who introduced various ways of preparing pastas by combining ingredients never seen before on any recipe book. Today, we will be making one of the healthiest pasta recipes you can make without any sweat. Let’s go started with the ingredients. Fine sea salt 12 ounces dry orecchiette or farfalle 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for drizzling 1 bunch scallions (about 8), trimmed and thinly sliced (keep the whites and greens separate) 2 large ears corn, shucked and kernels removed (2 cups kernels) ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, more for serving 3 tablespoons unsalted butter ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, more to taste ⅓ cup torn basil or mint, more for garnish ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste Fresh lemon juice, as needed Now let’s start cooking. Always be sure to use well salted water in boiling your pasta until you reach that firm state where it is cooked well but won’t easily break when tested. This will help in achieving that long, firm, and right pasta taste everyone will surely love. Once, boiled, set aside at least 1/2 cup of pasta water as we will need this later.
  2. 2. Next, heat oil in a large pan over considerably medium heat. Once heated enough, throw in your scallion whites, add a pinch of salt and cook for 3 minutes until soft. After which, you may add up all of the other ingredients but only 1/4 out of the 2 cups kernel. Let it simmer for another 3-5 minutes until the corn is tenderized. Next, add 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper before transferring everything to a blender. Blend the mixture until smooth. Add water if necessary. Meanwhile, hit the same skillet over high heat, add butter and let it melt. Add the rest of the 1/4 cup corn and cook for 1-2 minutes until tender. Add the corn puree and cook for 30 more seconds to combine flavors properly. Lastly, reduce the heat to medium, mix pasta in as well as the reserved 1/4 pasta water. Cook the mixture for one minute. Drop in the 1/4 cup of scallion greens, parmesan, red pepper flakes and other herbs. Sprinkle it with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper and top it with freshly-squeezed lemon juice to add taste. Transfer the mixture to your serving dish and sprinkle it with your desired herbs to add texture and taste. As for the presentation, you’d be the one to take care of it. Thanks for checking out!
