Sweet Corn Pasta

Sweet Corn and Pasta make a beautiful combination, simply love it!!! The sauce for this recipe is prepared with sweet corn (of course), onion, garlic and fresh basil leaves. If you do not have fresh basil leaves then you can use 1 tsp of dried basil leaves, but fresh flavors are always better.

Cheese Tip: I didn’t add cheese in the recipe, if you like then add it at step 6 in the recipe.

Also try: Red Sauce Pasta, Lemon Pasta or Paneer Spinach Stuffed Pasta Shells.
