Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the pasta. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add corn, zucchini, jalapeño, and garlic, and cook until softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cook until tomatoes have softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Add scallion and turn off the heat. (4-serving meal: use 2 tbsp olive oil) TIPS: Place a lid over the corn to keep kernels from popping out of the skillet. If you’re sensitive to spice, omit or use less jalapeño.
Add pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente, 7 to 10 minutes. Reserve ¾ cup pasta water and drain the pasta. Return cooked pasta to the pot, off heat, and add parsley, reserved pasta water, and herb garlic cheese. Stir to combine, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. (4-serving meal: use 1 ¼ cups)
Divide the summer penne alfredo between bowls. Top with sweet corn and burst tomatoes. Tuck in!
