Keeping in the spirit of putting feta on every.thing… Let’s make some fettuccine with leek and mushrooms, and sprinkle it with feta cheese!

However, and first, we need to discuss.

I live in Indiana, and if you need corn, this is where you will find it. Fields and fields of corn is all you see for miles and miles…
At this present time, there’s a Farm Stand with a ton of corn in each corner of this state. Within a 10 mile radius, I can take you to at least 6 of ’em.

A good week ago, I found myself standing in the kitchen, eating bread-crust smothered with Nutella and thinking about what to do with all the corn that I just bought from the corner’s farm-stand. Of course I threw most of the corn on the grill and enjoyed a deliciously juicy Grilled Corn with Herbed Butter, but still. That gets boring, and boring food is no good.

So as I was sitting there stuffing my face at 6 in the morning, I decided to test the partnership that would involve corn, pasta and mushrooms. At 6 a.m.

My brain goes to all sorts of places when we decide to think about food. Literally, I can see the lights go on in my head, the disco balls turning, and my food-brain just getting out of control. In a good way, though! Not in a weird, she’s-lost-her-mind type of way.

I figured that if corn is easily combined with orzo, then it should be just as delicious with fettuccine. And it was. Hooray!
I know I’m not being completely revolutionary here – duh – buuuuuut this was damn good!

I added all sort of goodies in here. However, the leek is the star. It definitely dominates. You can smell it, taste it, love it. It’s SO GOOD!

In trying to keep it light and meatless, I added a good dose of chopped mushrooms, and with just a sprinkle of feta, this pasta dish is now our new favorite.
Until the next pasta dish that I make, and THAT will also be our new favorite.

    This is one tasty-looking pasta dish, holy moly! It’s the kind of food where I just want to overload my fork and stuff my mouth until it’s fun and chew, chew, savoring the flavors. Because it’s all good. Sorry for the weird comment, your pasta has moved me. 🙂
