pasta with golden corn sauce
I bought Serving Up the Harvest at this great, little local chicken/garden/organic goodness store this spring. So far the recipes have been winners.
Pasta with Golden Corn Sauce
Kernels from 6 ears of corn
1 1/2 c. chicken broth
pinch of saffron threads (I bought saffron for the first time today- whoa expensive!)
1/4 pound of smoked turkey or ham, cut into thin strips (I used some deli ham that needed to be used up.)
1 c. quartered cherry tomatoes
1/4 c. chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper
1 lb. linguine
1. Bring pot of salted water to boil.
2. Combine corn, chicken broth and saffron in a med. saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 1 minute.
3. Blend the corn mixture and then add turkey, tomatoes and basil. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Cook pasta and drain.
5. Combine the pasta with the sauce in a serving bowl, toss well, and serve immediately.
