Ingredients:


  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1/2 lb. penne
  • 6 Tbs. olive oil, plus more as needed
  • Kernels cut from 2 ears of corn
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 zucchini, about 2 lb. total, cut into half-moons
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 tomatoes, cored, seeded and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 Tbs. sliced garlic
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tbs. tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 6 oz. mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 2 oz. Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated


Wine Pairing

This pairs well with soft, medium-bodied white wines like the Diemersdal MM Louw Sauvignon Blanc, Durbanville from our Wine Club.

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 400ºF.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Generously salt the water, add the pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain the pasta and rinse under cold running water. Set aside.

In a 12-inch nonstick fry pan over medium-high heat, warm 3 Tbs. of the olive oil. Add the corn, season with salt and black pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the corn is lightly golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Set aside.

Return the pan to medium-high heat and warm the remaining 3 Tbs. olive oil. Working in batches, add the zucchini, season with salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is tender and golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Add to the bowl with the corn. Repeat with the remaining zucchini, adding more oil to the pan as needed.

Set the pan over medium-low heat. Add the onion, 1 tsp. salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes soften and begin to form a sauce, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 1 minute. Add the wine and cook until the wine has reduced and the sauce is fairly thick, about 3 minutes more.

Add the pasta, tomato sauce, basil, mozzarella and half of the Parmigiano-Reggiano to the bowl with the vegetables and stir to combine. Transfer to the fry pan and sprinkle the remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano on top. Transfer the pan to the oven and bake until golden brown on top, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm. Serves 8.
