Tasty Tuesdays: Creamy Fettuccine with Corn & Arugula

Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!

This might be my new favorite summer pasta dish {and you know I have a lot of summer pastas on the blog!}.  This was really good and I'm definitely going to be making it again.

{ Original recipe from Real Simple Magazine.  I've changed it a little and added the cherry tomatoes.  Find the original recipe right here }

- 12 ounces fettuccine
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 leeks {white & light green parts, sliced thin}
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup corn kernels {from 2 ears or frozen}
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 cups arugula
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes; halved or quartered
- salt & pepper
- shaved Parmesan for serving

1.  Cook pasta according to package instructions; drain and set aside.

2.  Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  3.Add the leeks, garlic, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 3 to 4 minutes.

3.  Add the corn, tomatoes, and wine. Simmer until the corn is tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the cream.

5.  Add pasta; season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper, and toss to combine. Fold in the arugula. Sprinkle with the cheese before serving.

    this week i've linked up a very simple recipe for all that squash that's taking over our lives right now: Sauteed Summer Squash with New Garlic. bit o'lemon, bit o'chillies. very simple. very tasty.

  4. yummm, this looks so creamy and delicious. i would never think to add corn to pasta, but it sounds like a brilliant plan!


  5. Oh my gosh! I am making this next week for shure! I will try using almond milk instead of cream in the ongoing effort to get rid of the chubs. ;)
