Tuscan Fried Corn

I've been waiting for fresh vegetables all winter long and now that they are appearing in the grocery stores and at the Farmer's Market, the wait is over.  My little vegetable garden is just making it's appearance from the ground so I'll have to wait a little bit for them.  I've grilled sweet corn so far and now it's time for a new way to serve fresh corn.  Cutting the corn from the cobs is easy.  Just make sure you put it in a 9 x 9 pan or something similar to hold the kernels as you cut them off.





Tuscan Fried Corn

4 ears corn, shucked and sliced from ears
2 tbsp butter
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

2 slices Prosciutto, cut into ribbons
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Melt butter in a large frying pan.  Add in corn and Prosciutto and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes stirring often.  Add in salt, freshly ground pepper and red pepper flakes.  Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan cheese.
