10 ounces frozen corn kernels

3 tablespoons (or more, if you like) grated Parmesan cheese

Pint of cherry or grape tomatoes, halved

2 green onions or scallions, sliced

1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped (or two teaspoons dried basil)

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons minced garlic

salt and pepper, to taste


Bring water to a boil in a 6 quart stockpot or soup pot, and add 1 teaspoon salt.

Add the corn, cooking for three minutes, then add the frozen tortellini, and cook according to package directions. (Usually just needs to boil about three minutes.)

Drain the corn and tortellini. Place it in a large bowl, then add the remaining ingredients, tossing to distribute well. Serve warm.
