The Rich Pasta Dinner That Still Feels Right on a Hot Night
This fresh recipe is the definition of low-maintenance, from leaving shallots to steep and melt into butter, olive oil and balsamic vinegar for 20 minutes (just stirring them occasionally) to tossing in any kind of mushroom to join them while you cook the pasta. The result: a delicious alternative to a tomato-based summer pasta dish. The corn comes in toward the end, when you stir three cobs-worth of kernels into the veggie mixture you've got simmering on the stove; then, mix it all up with some crème fraîche and spaghetti or linguine. The soft and creamy noodles with mushrooms, mellow shallots and tender corn make a terrific combination.
