This recipe deserves a gold star! We’ve taken some of the summer’s brightest flavors — juicy tomatoes and sweet corn — and grilled them before tossing them together to make this pasta salad from our July/ August issue. Dolloped with ricotta and a bit of fresh basil, this vegetarian dinner is one that even the biggest meat-eaters will adore.
