Sweet Corn Pasta

I stumbled across a new blog that I love--Baked Bree. On her website, I found this sweet corn pasta recipe. It only took an ounce of energy to prepare! If you're looking for something simple, light, and summery, this is for you! Definitely full of simple flavors & a sweet crunch of fresh corn. I adapted the recipe a give it a try!
