step-by-step
instructions
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the zucchini. Remove and discard the husks and silks of the corn. Cut the kernels off the cobs; discard the cobs. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Halve the tomatoes; place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. 

Start the vegetables:
2 Start the vegetables:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced zucchini in an even layer; cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the corn and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened and fragrant.

Cook the pasta:
3 Cook the pasta:

While the vegetables cook, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Turn off the heat. Reserving ½ cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly and return to the pot. 

Finish the vegetables:
4 Finish the vegetables:

To the pan of cooked vegetables, add the tomato paste and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined. Turn off the heat; season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Finish the pasta & serve your dish:
5 Finish the pasta & serve your dish:

To the pot of cooked pasta, add the finished vegetables, seasoned tomatoes, butter, and half the reserved pasta cooking water; season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium-high, stirring vigorously, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly coated. If the pasta seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water to achieve your desired consistency. Turn off the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the finished pasta garnished with the cheese. Enjoy!
