Blend Up Canned Corn For A Simple, Silky Pasta Sauce
Convenient and versatile canned corn gives you a quick way to create a delightful pasta sauce with a surprising creaminess. Fortunately, the process couldn't be faster or easier.
To make a tasty corn-based pasta sauce, it's simply a matter of warming the canned corn in a pan after browning any aromatics you plan to use, such as shallots, onions, or garlic.
Once the corn has melded with the seasonings, just pour the mixture into a blender along with a splash of white wine or cream for a richer sauce and blend it until smooth.
Alternatively, you can add additional seasonings to the corn mixture before blending. When balancing flavors, you should consider what type of cheese you plan to add to the dish.
For the smoothest sauce, return the corn mixture to the pan. Heat it again and stir in the cheese of your choice so it melts into the sauce before pouring it over your pasta.
Consider using options like parmesan, Grana Padano, or gruyere for deliciously pleasing additions. Feel free to experiment with different aromatics and cheese varieties.
