Pasta with Roasted Corn, Garlic and Zucchini

Photobucket

For dinner Tuesday, I made this recipe that I saw on the Food Network the other day. I thought it sounded really good, but neither Brad nor I cared for the corn in it. I'm posting the recipe anyway, with my modifications, so I'll have it for next time I want to tweak it. Next time I think I'll omit the corn and replace it with some other veggies. I bet some broccoli would be good!

Pasta with Roasted Corn, Garlic and Zucchini

1 pound farfalle pasta
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 ears roasted corn, cut from the cob
2 medium zucchini, chopped
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 cup vegtable broth
1/3 cup roasted garlic cloves
1 bunch fresh basil, torn
Salt and ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wrap corn and garlic separately in foil and roast in preheated oven for about 1 hour. This can be done in advance on a prep day.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and reserve 1 cup of the cooking water. Transfer pasta to a large bowl.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add corn cut from cob, zucchini and onion and saute for 3 minutes, until golden brown. Add broth and roasted garlic and bring to a simmer. Simmer 5 minutes. Pour mixture over pasta, add basil, and toss to combine, adding cooking water, if necessary, to moisten pasta. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

no roasted corn for you, eh? i love roasted corn but i'm quite certain that i've never had it added to a pasta dish. i can see how it would turn you off--corn and pasta would not a happy marriage make. the rest sounds great though! :)
