Ingredients

Kosher salt

2 ears corn, shucked

5 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 cups grape tomatoes

2 cloves garlic, minced

Freshly ground pepper

1/2 cup white wine

12 ounces pappardelle pasta

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

1 small bunch scallions, thinly sliced

1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan, plus more for topping

Torn basil, for topping

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the corn and cook until slightly tender, about 3 minutes. Remove with tongs, reserving the boiling water. Let the corn cool slightly, then cut off the kernels.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tomatoes, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and cook until the tomatoes soften, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 more minute. Add the wine and cook until reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pappardelle in the corn water as the label directs. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water, then drain the pasta. Add the chicken broth and corn kernels to the skillet and bring to a simmer.
  4. Add the pasta to the skillet; add the scallions, parmesan, the remaining 3 tablespoons butter and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Toss to combine, adding the reserved cooking water as needed. Season with salt and pepper. Top with more parmesan and basil.
