Fresh Corn

Pennsylvania Dutch Corn Noodles

Pennsylvania Dutch Corn Noodles

This simple, tasty pasta dish is traditional to the “plain and simple” Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine. It’s a perfect way to use fresh summer corn and tomatoes when they’re at their peak of flavor and abundance. In its original form this recipe is made with egg ribbons; to make it vegan, I recommend substituting ribbons made of hearty whole grain flours like spelt or quinoa.
