Tasty Tuesday: Pappardelle With Corn

Looks very good, you all know i'm big on pasta!!! I've never tried it yet, but before the year is over I will definitly cook this up. The dish is called Pappardelle With Corn. Thanks to the Food Network Online for this delicious meal. Check the recipe after the jump. Bon' Appetite!


Kosher salt

2 ears corn, shucked

5 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 cups grape tomatoes

2 cloves garlic, minced

Freshly ground pepper

1/2 cup white wine

12 ounces pappardelle pasta

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

1 small bunch scallions, thinly sliced

1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan, plus more for topping

Torn basil, for topping


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the corn and cook until slightly tender, about 3 minutes. Remove with tongs, reserving the boiling water. Let the corn cool slightly, then cut off the kernels.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tomatoes, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and cook until the tomatoes soften, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 more minute. Add the wine and cook until reduced by half, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the pappardelle in the corn water as the label directs. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water, then drain the pasta. Add the chicken broth and corn kernels to the skillet and bring to a simmer.

Add the pasta to the skillet; add the scallions, parmesan, the remaining 3 tablespoons butter and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Toss to combine, adding the reserved cooking water as needed. Season with salt and pepper. Top with more parmesan and basil.
