CREAMY CORN FETTUCCINE w/ grilled chicken

This is my favorite time of year...well one of them :) I love when the weather starts to cool off just a bit, and the anticipation of fall begin's. And of course it's still peach and corn season...two of my favorite foods.

When I came across this recipe in my Cuisine at Home Magazine...I instantly knew it would be a winner! So run down to your local produce stand, before they close in a few weeks, and gets some yummy fresh corn for this dish. Trust me, you won't be sorry!

(You'll notice in my photo that I used spaghetti noodles instead of fettuccine. That's just what I had on hand. Really you could use any pasta you like.)

thanks so much for sharing this. It looks like such a good variation of the traditional chicken fettucine. Will have to try.
