The combo you didn't know you needed... until now! Creamy corn pasta with basil! 🌽 ⠀

Here is how to make it: ⠀

🔸8oz FG linguine pasta ⠀
🔸1 tablespoon olive oil ⠀
🔸8 scallions, trimmed and sliced ⠀
🔸2 cups fresh corn kernels ⠀
🔸½ teaspoon ground black pepper ⠀
🔸3 tablespoons unsalted butter ⠀
🔸½ cup grated Parmesan cheese ⠀
🔸⅓ cup torn basil or mint ⠀
🔸¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes ⠀
🔸Fresh lemon juice ⠀

1️⃣Cook pasta according to the package directions. Drain and reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water. ⠀
2️⃣Heat oil in large sauté pan over medium heat; add scallion whites and a pinch of salt and cook until soft, 3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water and all but 1/4 cup corn; simmer until corn is heated through and almost tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, transfer to a blender, and purée mixture until smooth. ⠀
3️⃣Heat the same skillet over high heat. Add butter and let melt. Add reserved 1/4 cup corn and cook until tender. Add the corn purée and cook for 30 seconds to heat and combine the flavors. ⠀
4️⃣Reduce heat to medium. Add pasta and half the reserved pasta cooking water, tossing to coat. Cook for 1 minute, then add a little more of the pasta cooking water if the mixture seems too thick. Stir in 1/4 cup of the scallion greens, the Parmesan, the basil, the red pepper flakes, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Sprinkle with fresh lemon juice to taste. ⠀
