This Week on Kwik Cook "Garden Pasta & Lavender Iced Tea"~By Jenny Baxter of Jennys Kitchen

Well, the garden is ready to be harvested and you are wondering what to do with your abundance of tomatoes, basil and corn. Canning and freezing are your standard methods, along with cooking salsa, pastas sauces, pestos etc. These preparations can be time consuming and with all the heat we have been experiencing many of you do not wish to go back into the kitchen to make dinner. So how does a ten minute meal AND a use for your produce sound? Just continue to read and I will share a meal that allows you to “kill two birds with one stone!” And as an added bonus how refreshing would a lavender ice tea be on these scorching summer evenings?....

Salt and cracked pepper to taste

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Spray the water with olive oil from a spray can. Add the pasta and cook for 5-7 minutes until al dente. Drain. While the pasta is cooking melt the butter in a pan and add the garlic, Prosciutto, and corn. Cook for about 4-5 minutes. Place the tomatoes, basil and corn mixture in a large bowl. Add the drained pasta and ¼ cup reserved cooking liquid. Season the pasta with salt and cracked pepper. Toss to combine. Place on a platter and sprinkle the cheese over the top
