End of Summer Gluten Free Pasta

This gluten free pasta dish has got it all! It is a colorful celebration of the end of summer goodness you may be finding lately at the farmer’s market, with our hero ingredient… corn!

What I love, apart from the clean flavors, is the nourishing texture you get from every bite. The colour alone in this gluten free pasta is just so vibrant and inviting. This is one dish that is light but also nourishing and satiating. Perfect for an evening meal or even a mid-day lunch if you want to serve it cold. It works both ways!

Skill: Easy


2 cups corn kernels (fresh or defrosted from frozen)
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1/2 cup coconut milk
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1.5 cups dry gluten free pasta of choice
Sea salt
Black pepper


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add several big pinches of sea salt. Cook pasta according to package instructions, then drain. My chef tip? Cook the pasta 1 minute under, drain it, then shock it in ice water and re-combine it with your sauce afterward!
  2. While pasta cooks: in a blender, combine feta, coconut milk, thawed corn, 2 Tbsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Drain pasta and return to the pot. Toss with the sauce in a large skillet to “cook” the sauce into the pasta. 
  3. To plate, top the pasta with an extra drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of feta.
