Herbed Ricotta Pasta with Corn and Zucchini

Source: Everyday Food, June 2012


  • Salt and pepper
  • 3/4 pound short pasta, such as campanelle
  • 1 3/4 cups corn kernels (from 2 ears)
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for serving
  • Reserved chopped zucchini
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, torn, plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill


  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta 3 minutes less than package instructions; add corn and cook until tender, 3 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta water, then drain.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup pasta water, ricotta, and Parmesan. Add pasta mixture, zucchini, basil, and dill and toss to combine. Add more pasta water if necessary to create a light sauce that coats pasta. Season with salt and pepper and top with more basil and Parmesan.

    Made this tonight - very good and very easy. My two year old loved it. Nice summer pasta dish. Also for the person who didn't know how much zucchini - 2 cups grilled zucchini leftover - I just grilled fresh to put in mine. I saw the video on the right side that gives the details on what is needed and goes through the recipe -

    Made it and loved it. I was surprised at how well the dill and basil went together. I added mushrooms and bacon. Very tasty!

    Question: how much zucchini? chopped zucchini reserved from what? seems this recipe accompanies another elsewhere, but as it stands here alone, more info is needed.

    Sounds great but it would be a help if you added nutritional values to these recipes. Thanks.

    Trying to figure out why your printed recipes for Sarah's videos are so different.
    She tells how to make something then one goes to the recipe and gets completely different instructions and sometimes even different ingredients!
    Please take care to make them the same.
