The original calls for regular bacon, but I substituted turkey bacon for healthier version. You can also substitute green onions for the leeks.

Recipe Ingredients for Fettuccini w/ Sweet Corn & Fresh Dill

8 ears, large sweet corn
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 lb fettuccini
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
18 slices turkey bacon
3 leeks
4 cloves garlic
1 red chili pepper
3 tbsp fresh thyme
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup dill
1 salt

Recipe Directions for Fettuccini w/ Sweet Corn & Fresh Dill

  1. Place a small bowl in a larger bowl inverted. Balance the ears of corn on the bottom of the small bowl then scrape the kernels off which will be captured in the big bowl.

  2. Puree half of the corn with the stock in the food processor or blender.

  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta, salt water, and cook the pasta until al dente.

  4. Meanwhile, heat EVOO, a turn of the pan, in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook to crisp, drain and reserve the bacon and pour off all but about 2 tablespoons of drippings.

  5. Return pan to heat and add whole corn kernals and season with black pepper and just a bit of salt. Cook corn until it starts to lightly brown at edges, about 5-6 minutes, then add onions and garlic, chili pepper, and thyme and cook together a couple of minutes more.

  6. Stir in puree and heat through. Then stir in butter and dill. If the sauce is too thick, add a ladle of starchy water to the pan just before draining the pasta.

  7. Add pasta to the sauce and toss vigorously to coat evenly for at least 1 minute. Adjust seasoning and serve with freshly grated cheese (parmesan or Parmigiano-Reggiano) on top.
