Angel Hair with Corn Feta & Fresh Tomato

1 pound dried angel hair pasta
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups frozen corn
2 cloves garlic, sliced
3 tablespoons fresh oregano
1/2 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1. Bring 5 quarts water to a boil. Add salt. Add the pasta and cook until just al dente, about 1 minute less than the package directions. Scoop out and reserve 1 cup of the pasta water before draining the pasta.

Let the kernels cook, without stirring, until browned, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and add the garlic, oregano, and a good pinch of salt. Cook about 1 minute.

3. Stir in the red pepper flakes, add the reserved pasta water, and cook for 1 minute.

4. Add the cooked pasta to the pan,stirring. Remove from the heat and toss in the tomatoes, additional olive oil and feta. Serve immediately.
