In this dish, we’re paying homage to the vibrant flavors of late-summer produce by tossing sweet corn and plump, juicy tomatoes—cooked with just a bit of Calabrian chile paste for a kick—with fresh sheets of pasta cut to create pappardelle (a wide, flat variety that originated in Tuscany).

instructions
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Remove the ghee from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Remove any husks and silks from the corn; cut the kernels off the cobs. Halve the tomatoes. Stack the pasta sheets on a work surface. Cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-wide pieces; carefully separate the layers. 

Cook the vegetables:
2 Cook the vegetables:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the ghee on medium-high until melted. Add the chopped garlic and corn kernels; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add as much of the chile paste 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. Add the halved tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Turn off the heat. 

Cook the pasta:
3 Cook the pasta:

Meanwhile, add the prepared pasta to the pot of boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly. 

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

To the pan of cooked vegetables, add the cooked pasta, crème fraîche, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, and half the reserved pasta cooking water. Cook on medium-high, stirring gently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the pasta is coated (if necessary, gradually add the remaining cooking water to ensure the pasta is thoroughly coated). Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished pasta garnished with the cheese. Enjoy!
