Penne with Poblano Chiles, Corn, and Cilantro Cream
Can’t find poblano chiles? Use green bell peppers instead, and spice up the sauce with minced jalapeño chiles or 1/4 cup prepared green salsa.
1 | Purée cilantro, 1/2 cup corn, cream, garlic, and 1/2 tsp. cumin in mini food processor. Set aside.
2 | Cook penne in large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions. Drain, reserving 3/4 cup cooking liquid.
3 | Heat oil in large skillet over high heat. Add chiles and onion, and cook 10 minutes, or until onion browns. Stir in remaining 1 cup corn and remaining 1 tsp. cumin.
4 | Add penne and cilantro cream to poblano-onion mixture in skillet, and toss to coat. Add enough reserved cooking liquid by 1/4 cupfuls to moisten. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and sprinkle with queso fresco.
