This comes from my love of fresh mozzarella and corn.


4 ears fresh corn
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound small pasta, like ditalini
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 pound fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/4\" dice
12 leaves fresh basil, chopped
salt and pepper to taste


Step 1
Bring at least 2 quarts of water to boil and sat to taste. While water is heating, cut kernels from corn and sauté in the butter for 5 minutes.\r\n

Step 2
Put corn in large bowl and when water boils, add pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and add to corn. Add olive oil and toss. Cool to room temperature.

Step 3
Add mozzarella, basil, salt and pepper and toss. Add a little more oil to taste.
