Penne with Corn, Parmesan and Garlic

There’s a theme with my cooking – healthy, delicious, and quick!  After working a 12-hour day, I need some soul warming sustenance.  This uses pantry items I always have on hand and is hot on the plate in 15minutes.  Have a chilled glass of white wine and take a load off!

Dinner for 2:

1 cup dried penne pasta (or enough to feed two people, depending on how hungry you are)
1 cup frozen corn (preferably organic)
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 tblspoon butter
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Freshly cracked pepper

Cook pasta according to package, in salted water.  Heat pan on medium/high, melt butter, and add corn.  Cook until corn is warmed, then add garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes.  Toss cooked pasta into pan with corn and add cracked  pepper to taste.  Transfer to two bowls and top with freshly grated Parmesan.  Enjoy and savor.
