Creamy Corn Pasta with Bacon and Scallions

Creamy Corn Pasta with Bacon and Scallions

Brighten up weeknight pasta with corn, basil, and scallions to satisfy your summer comfort food cravings.

TOTAL TIME: 30 MIN
YIELD: 4 SERVINGS

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices bacon
  • Kosher salt
  • 6 ears corn, shucked
  • 12 oz. orecchiette pasta
  • 1 oz. pecorino cheese, finely grated, plus more for serving
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 c. basil, torn, plus more for serving
  • Hot sauce, for serving

 

Directions:

  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet on medium until crisp, about 7 minutes; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Break into pieces when cool.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add corn and cook 2 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board. Cook pasta per package directions in the same pot. Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain pasta.
  3. When corn is cool enough to handle but while pasta is still cooking, cut off kernels (you should have about 3 cups). Transfer 2 cups to a blender along with cheese, ¾ cup pasta cooking water, and ¼ teaspoon salt; puree until very smooth.
  4. Toss pasta with corn puree, adding some reserved pasta water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if pasta seems dry. Fold in reserved corn, scallions, basil, and bacon. Serve sprinkled with additional cheese and basil and with hot sauce if desired.
