This is a very summery pasta that I like to make year round. It’s really light and has good acidity from tomatoes as well as a little sweetness from the corn.

This is my favorite kind of angel hair pasta. It tastes great and it has a little something extra. It’s Barilla Plus, see what I did there? ūüėČ
