Creamy Corn and Sausage Spaghetti

Creamy corn and sausage spaghetti is light, spicy, and an easy dinner to throw together in under thirty minutes. Spicy andouille sausage, charred corn, heavy cream, and crushed tomatoes make the perfect sauce for a spicy spaghetti dish.

Is there something on your summer grocery list every single week?

Corn is our summer staple. Oh! And don’t forget tomatoes.

We actually live across the street from several corn fields. I highly doubt they grow corn for human consumption but still, it is plentiful.

I love to make corn salsa or elote (aka Mexican Street Corn) for taco nights.

You guys know corn is always included in my shrimp boil skewers.

Creamy Corn and sausage spaghetti starts off with oil, butter, and some crushed red pepper flakes. That sets the heat tone in the background of the dish.

While that heats through, char some corn over an open flame on the stove or in the broiler.

Cut the corn off the cob.

Add the corn and sausage to the hot butter and oil, chili flake mixture. Saute until the sausage is slightly browned.

Mix in the garlic, crushed tomatoes, and heavy cream. That is all you need to make this dish!

This can be cooked together in the time it takes to boil water and cook the pasta.

I like the pick color but let’s say you are dairy-free. You can skip the heavy cream and cheese all together and make this a tomato based dish.

The flavors still pop!

I enjoy a smoky and spicy andouille sausage in this pasta but any sausage you have on hand would also work for this pasta.
