3Add corn, garlic, salt and pepper to drippings; cook and stir over medium-high heat until corn is tender. Remove 3/4 cup corn from pan.
4Transfer remaining corn to a food processor; add cheese, almonds and oil. Process until blended. Return to skillet; add the reserved corn and heat through.
5Drain fettuccine, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water. Add pasta, three-fourths of the bacon and 3/4 cup basil to corn mixture. Add enough reserved pasta water to reach desired consistency, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with remaining bacon and basil. Top with tomatoes and additional cheese.
