Buttered Corn and Noodles

Pat Duran


This is a perfect comfort pasta that is light and easy, but still very filling. Be sure to use very ripe corn if using fresh off the cob to get the full effect of sweet corn with smoky bacon and the zest of lemon and green onions.
Fresh or frozen sweet corn can be used in this recipe. Food52
