Ingredients

  • 3 Cups large shell pasta, uncooked (6 cups cooked)
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter (I used Kerrygold)
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 Cup (4 ounces) Kerrygold Aged Cheddar, shredded
  • 1 box of Kerrygold Dubliner Cheese Wedges
  • 2 ears of corn, grilled and removed from cob
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

While pasta is cooking, make cheese sauce. Over medium high heat, melt butter in large sauce pan and whisk in flour. Whisk for about 2 minutes. Add milk and continue to whisk to avoid any clumps. Cook until mixture thickens and begins to bubble, stirring often. Remove from heat and stir cheese and thyme. Add corn and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve.

Grilled Corn Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Grilled Corn Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
