Someone should warn you that as you get older, time speeds up. I am pretty sure I am still flexing my pasta rolling arms in satisfaction and it's already time for the May round of Pass the Cook Book Club. What's that, you ask. Oh, just a totally chill group on facebook where we pick a book and some recipes then all give them a try on the same date. Pretty fun, low key, and a cook way to try out new recipes. Best part is you don't even have to be a blogger. You may just enjoy reading food blogs and looking for a little inspiration in the kitchen. Well, bam! Here it is ;D

- Kosher salt
- 1 pound dried angel hair pasta
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 ears sweet corn, kernels cut from the cobs (about 2 cups)
- 2 cloves garlic , sliced
- 3 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
- ½ tablespoon crushed red pepper flake
- 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 avocado, sliced and diced
- 1 cup feta cheese crumbles
- 1 lbs fresh cooked chorizo, sliced
- handful fresh cilantro, snipped
- Bring a large pot of haevily salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until just al dente, stirring often so that it doesnt stick. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water, and drain the rest. Set aside.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heated to medium-high, add the olive oil and corn, spreading into a single layer.
- Let the corn cook until browned, no stirring, for about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add the garlic, oregano, a heavy pinch salt and cook 1 minute.
- Stir in the red pepper flakes, and half of the reserved pasta water and cook 1 minute longer.
- Add the cooked pasta to the pan, stiring the noodles into the sauce, add the remaining pasta water if needed, but keep in mind this is a pasta salad and a little more EVOO is yet to come.
- Off heat, stir in the tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil. Cover and cool in fridge.
- When ready to serve, toss in sliced avocado, feta cheese, chorizo, and cilantro.
