Cook the Book: Fettucine with Corn, Bacon, and Shiitake Mushrooms

I'm a sucker for any pasta dish even faintly resembling a carbonara, so it's no wonder I bookmarked this recipe from Urban Italian. Six cups of corn may seem like overdoing it, but half of it is actually puréed with the milk and cream to make an incredibly corny, creamy sauce. Paired with fresh pasta and dotted with more corn, crisp bacon, and earthy shiitake, I don't think anyone could resist.
