Summer Corn and Tomato Pasta

False Alarm!

This is how technology goes…especially for a non-techy like myself.  When they said, “It will be just a few days.  Post a message on your blog and let your readers know and you’ll be up and running shortly.”  Ok, I totally believed it and – false alarm – that was weeks ago.  To be fair, we did hit a few unanticipated hiccups with the new blog and site launch.  And it has set us back a few weeks or more…but it’s really not anyone’s fault.  It’s just technology.  And we live in a techno-dependent world.  Anyone with a laptop or cell phone or any other kind of device (which is all of us!) gets it.  Sometimes you just have to roll with it…and stuff your face with a bowl of Summer Corn and Tomato Pasta!

So here I am.  Although my recipe posting paused to the outside world, I’ve been cooking and eating more pasta than I have all summer!  I hope you’ve been keeping up without me!  🙂

I spent about 10 days with my sister, my Mom (Cookie), and both our kiddos in Florida, soaking up the heat and creating all kinds of pasta yumminess.  It did help that the last three days were 24/7 torrential rain storms.  Seriously, I’ve never seen anything like it!  So with my sister’s encouragement and my nieces unending enthusiasm for pasta, I cooked and cooked and cooked all week.

So the next few blog posts will be reflections and creations of my trip…and the first one I’m excited to share is a fresh Summer Corn and Tomato Pasta.  I used our Gluten Free Tagliolini and it may seem unlikely that a gluten free dish can taste so good, but this recipe will change your thoughts on great taste and gluten free!  And we must take advantage of fresh summer corn and tomatoes from the farm stands and grocery stores while they are in season!

Here is what makes it easy:  you can microwave the corn in the husks in the microwave.  Do not overcook, as you want the corn to be firm and a little crunchy.  Using a knife, you can cut the corn off the cob – yum! Nothing is better!  Summer tomatoes are at their prime and you can really use whatever you have on hand.  The simple combination of the feta cheese, simple seasonings, a small amount of oil and the reserved pasta water creates the ultimate healthy summer pasta.  And for more summer fun, try this or this!

You can serve this as a main course, but I really think it shines as a side dish for any summer cookout or dinner party.  And note that you can use any pasta, but I encourage you to try gluten free pasta…why not?  It’s like technology – you gotta keep trying new things, following trends and learning! 🙂
