- 1 pound orecchiette pasta
- 1 (1 lb.) package smoked bacon, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices
- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- 2 (10 oz.) packages grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- Salt and pepper

- Discard all but 2 Tbsp. bacon fat and reduce heat to medium. Add olive oil. When it's hot, add corn and cook for 3 to 4 minutes (1 to 2 minutes if corn was frozen). Add tomatoes and cook until just softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar. Remove from heat.
