ingredients

directions

  • Preheat a stovetop or outdoor grill over high heat. Rub the corn with the oil and place on the hot grill. Cook, turning often, until the corn is charred all around, about 8 minutes total. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly before cutting the kernels off the cob.
  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat with the butter. Once melted, stir in the shallot, garlic and half of the corn. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne.
  • Add the cream cheese and heavy cream and cook over low heat until the mixture has reduced by half, and slightly thickened.
  • In the meantime, bring a large pot of cold water to a boil. Season liberally with salt, and add the gnocchi. Cook according to package directions. Remove about 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water before draining the gnocchi and add it to the sauce.
  • Stir the cooked pasta to the sauce and stir in the cotija cheese, and lime juice. Give it a taste and adjust seasoning accordingly, adding more salt or pepper as needed. Garnish with the remaining corn, cilantro and paprika.

    Hi! Amazing recipe. What could I substitute for cream cheese in the sauce? With cream sauces sometimes I like to do heavy cream with white wine but wanted to know if you had a cream cheese alternative in mind. Thanks!
