Featured Recipe: Chipotle Corn Pasta

  • 4 bundles of Ohio City Pasta linguini
  • Butter and/or EVOO
  • Fresh garlic
  • 4 corn cobs (cook and remove corn from cob)
  • 1 Tablespoon pureed chipotles in adobo sauce – this stuff is spicy!
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Goat Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Prepare pasta and set aside (Ohio City Pasta only takes about 1 minute to cook). Saute garlic, corn and chipotle in butter/EVOO. Toss with pasta and fresh cilantro and top with goat cheese. Enjoy!

Hint: A can of chipotles will go a long way. Puree in a mini-food processor and save in the freezer for future use. It adds great flavor to so many dishes, including soup and chili, and is always good paired with corn!

**One bundle of Ohio City Pasta equals about one serving. Feel free to tweak this recipe to feed as many folks as you need.
