Pasta with Corn and Tomatoes
It is that time of year when I am still relaxing, enjoying the bounty of my garden. You know the calm before the storm...
My tomatoes get crazy in September. I look out at all the places they have planted themselves and the anxiety mounts. What am I going to do with all of them?
Tonight, I am going to sit outside, enjoy the glistening twilight of August and enjoy this magnificent meal that makes the most August's gifts.
- 8 oz Penne Rigate (gluten free or your own favorite)
- 2 tbsp Garlic Lover's Vinegar
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup or 2 ears corn kernels, cooked
- 4 tomatoes, chopped
- 1 tbsp Dill Salt
- 1/2 cup chopped green onions
- 1/4 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
In a large pot with boiling salted water cook pasta until al dente. Drain. Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk together the olive oil, Garlic Lover's Vinegar, and Dill Salt. Stir in the tomatoes, corn kernels, and green onions. Let sit for 5 to 10 min. Toss pasta with tomato mixture. Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese. Garnish with a sprinkle of Dill Salt.
