I love watching The Chew and have ton's of recipes from them I have been wanting to get to.
I think this was one of his 5 in 5 meals on the show.
In a large saute pan, add the olive oil and bacon-fry til crisp
Next add the corn, tomatoes and garlic, cook for an addt'l 4 minutes
****We don't eat diced tomatoes around these parts so I used a can of tomato sauce that I seasoned***
Add the Cavatelli to the pan and toss with parsley, butter and a pinch of Salt and Pepper.
Garnish with Pamigiano Reggiano
Hubby says there should not be corn in pasta and didn't even try it =(
But his not into mixing corn into his food anyway so I didn't think he would eat it...Mom agreed...
BUT I LIKED IT and will have to make it for Q since he was not here when I made it.
Arleen liked it to, I brought some in to work for her to try.
