This recipe, from Chef Carly Gillis, of the Seattle Marriott Waterfront Hotel, won the Barilla 2012 Chef Recipe Contest. Usually a peppery side dish or taco filling, rajas are mixed with pasta and a creamy corn-cheese sauce for a flavor-packed meal.



    Step 1

    Cook the Barilla® pasta for half the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking. Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

    Step 2

    Combine the cream, paprika, and 14 cups of the corn in a large pot. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer for 20 minutes. Using an immersion blender, puree the mixture until smooth. Add the cheese and whisk until melted. Let cool and refrigerate until needed.

    Step 3

    Char the bell peppers and poblanos over an open flame until they are blackened. Put them in a bowl or container and cover to steam for 10 minutes. Peel off the blackened skins. Cut open the peppers and removed the seeds. Cut the peppers into 2-inch strips.

    Step 4

    In a large saute pan, melt the butter. Saute the onions, garlic, and remaining 7 cups corn until lightly caramelized. Add the peppers and heat through. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

    Step 5

    For each serving, to order: Warm about 3/4 cup corn sauce in a pan. Reheat 1 cup pasta in simmering water. Drain and add it to the sauce with some of the pepper mixture. Season with lime zest and juice and plate. Top with more pepper mixture and a sprinkle of cilantro.
