Creamy Summer Corn Pasta with Pecorino + Basil is a dream balance of seasonal flavors. There’s nothing like buttery and sweet corn on the cob in the summer, which is the inspiration for this dish. Saute shallots, garlic, and corn in butter, and blend ‘em with pecorino cheese for a sharp, rich note. The corn puree will turn into a sauce when you finish the dish in a skillet with pasta water and a few knobs of butter. Serve with fresh basil, crushed red chili flakes, cracked black pep, and more pecorino. Finish with crispy bacon bits for a savory, smoky note .
