Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes


  • 4 cups Stahlbush Super Sweet Corn
  • 12 oz dry pasta
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • ½ cup dry white wine or vegetable broth
  • 4 tbsp vegan butter
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Prepare the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve about 1 cup of the cookingwater before straining the cooked pasta.
  • In a medium-sized saucepan or skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add theonion and sauté for 2-3 minutes or until softened.
  • Stir in the garlic and red pepper flakes (if using), and sauté for another minute. Pour in the white wine.
  • When it comes to a simmer, add in 2 cups (350 g) of the corn kernels. Reduce the heat and simmer for a minute ortwo, until the corn is heated through.
  • Remove from heat, and pour in the lemon juice and nutritional yeast.
  • Add the corn mixture to a blender. Blend on high until completely smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. This may take a few minutes.
  • In the same skillet used to cook the first half of the corn, heat the butter over medium heat. Once melted and hot, add the remaining 2 cups (350 g) of corn kernels. Sauté for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon zest.
  • Combine the creamed corn sauce with the drained, cooked pasta. Stir in the buttery corn kernels and basil. Add a splash of the reserved pasta water if the sauce needs to be thinned, or an extra squeeze of lemon juice to taste. (The sauce will thicken as it cools.)
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
