This was really good. Just a very subtle hint of heat from the Chipotle pepper. Love how easy it was to put everything together. The sauce is very easy to make but really added a lovely flavor to the sweet corn and those cherry tomatoes exploded with sweet flavor. Penne pasta was the perfect choice for this recipe.
