- 1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for grilling
- 1 1/2 pounds beefsteak tomatoes, halved
- 3 ears corn

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions, then drain and return to pot.
Meanwhile, heat a grill or grill pan to high; clean and lightly oil. Toss tomatoes and corn with 2 tablespoons oil and season. Grill, turning occasionally, until charred in spots and tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Let cool slightly.
