To achieve a delicious smoky flavor when making this Grilled Tomato and Corn Pasta, give tomatoes and corn a quick turn on the grill.


  • Salt and pepper

  • ¾ pound gemelli pasta

  • ¼ cup olive oil, plus more for grilling

  • 1 ½ pounds beefsteak tomatoes, halved

  • 3 ears corn

  • 1 cup ricotta

  • ½ cup torn fresh basil


  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions, then drain and return to pot.

  2. 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.
