Summer Pasta

Basil not pictured.

1 bag/box of a spiral pasta such as gemelli or casarecce

2 tablespoons of Evoo

2 cloves garlic

1 pint of cherry tomatoes (you can use Roma or slicer tomatoes just remove the seeds)

2 ears of fresh corn

1 small zucchini

3/4 marinara sauce

1/2 cup reserved pasta water

Shredded Parmesan cheese

Fresh basil

Cook pasta according to package

In a large skillet heat oil then add garlic until fragrant. Add chopped tomatoes, corn and zucchini and cook about 4-5 minutes until slightly brown. Season with salt and pepper. Add marinara sauce and reserved cooking water (if you forget use broth).

Add pasta to sauce. Don’t use all of it if you feel there is too much pasta. Drizzle with olive oil then add shredded cheese and fresh basil.
