 2 tsp tomato paste
 Armanino Grated Parmesan Cheese, for serving

Directions

1

Heat grill to medium-high heat. Remove husks and silk from corn; rinse well. Brush lightly with oil. Grill corn 8-12 minutes or until lightly charred and tender, turning occasionally.

Chef’s Tips

No grill, no problem! To prepare corn on the stovetop, simply place shucked ears in boiling water. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand about 10 minutes or until tender. To prepare corn in the microwave, leave husks on cobs. Microwave corn 4 minutes on HIGH, adding an additional 3 minutes for each ear of corn. Let cool several minutes before remove husks and silk.
