Pan-roasting in a dry skillet is a fantastic way to up the flavor of vegetables without adding any fat. For a spicy kick, add a chopped jalapeno pepper to the pan when you roast the poblanos.

Recipe Ingredients for Pan-Roasted Corn and Poblano Chili Pasta Salad

8 oz uncooked pasta
1 1/2 cups poblano chile, fresh, diced
1 1/2 cups yellow corn, fresh, kernels
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp ground cumin
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp water
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 cups tomatoes, diced
1 cups cilantro, fresh, coarsely chopped
1/2 cups red onions, chopped

Recipe Directions for Pan-Roasted Corn and Poblano Chili Pasta Salad

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain pasta; rinse under cold running water and drain again.

  2. Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add poblano chilies and cook over high heat until lightly charred, but still bright green and crisp tender, about 3 minutes. (Don't stir too often or chilies will overcook before charring.) Remove to a small bowl.

  3. Add corn to skillet and cook over high heat until charred in a few places and crisp-tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and cumin and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  4. In a large serving bowl, whisk together lime juice, oil, water, salt and pepper until blended. Add pasta, chilies, corn mixture, tomatoes, cilantro and onion; toss to mix and coat. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
