Ingredients

  • 3 large ears corn, shucked
  • 8 ounces fettuccini (whole-wheat or gluten-free, if preferred)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup packed arugula
  • 1/2 cup packed basil
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic
  • salt/pepper
  • 1/2 cup mini mozzarella balls (omit for vegan/dairy-free version)

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the corn, reduce heat to medium and let cook until tender, about 9-10 minutes.
  2. Remove the corn using tongs and when cool to the touch, cut the kernels off and set aside.
  3. Bring the remaining water back to a boil. Add the fettuccini and cook until al dente according to package directions. Drain and return back to the pot.
  4. While the corn and pasta are cooking, make the pesto.
  5. Place the olive oil, arugula, basil, garlic cloves, balsamic vinegar and pinch salt/pepper into a blender or food processor and puree until mostly smooth.
  6. Add the corn kernels and pesto to the hot pasta and toss until combined.
  7. Gently stir in the mozzerella balls, if using.
