My friend Isaac’s mom is a great cook. She made us a great pasta dinner one night. Here’s her recipe.
1 pound wagon wheel pasta or your other favorite shape, cooked
one bag of frozen corn, cooked (If it’s summer, you can cut some fresh off the cob instead!)
4 – 6 cloves of garlic, sliced
1 box of grape tomatoes, halved, or cherry tomatoes, quartered
about 10 leaves fresh basil, sliced thinly
1 lb. fresh mozzarella, cubed
¼ cup or so of your favorite olive oil
Salt and Pepper
While cooking pasta, heat olive oil and garlic until garlic is brown but not burnt. Poor over tomatoes and corn in a very large bowl. Once pasta is done and drained, add to tomatoes and corn , add salt and pepper to taste and toss. Then add cheese and toss again.. Right before serving, sprinkle basil on top and toss again. Can be served warm and cold leftovers are very good, too.

I’m honored! This is both Isaac and his sister’s favorite pasta bar none. I hope your readers enjoy the recipe!
I bet they will!
Eve, that certainly does sound like an AWESOME pasta recipe…
Guess what my family will have for dinner tonight! :)). I’ll be sure to let you know how everyone liked it.
I hope they do!
It sounds great and I think I’d add a little chicken!
It is very versatile!
That sounds like a great meal, Eve, and I love that it’s both quick and uses ingredients that are easy to find. (I have everything but the cheese at home already!)
