Bow-Tie Pasta with Corn, Thyme, and Parmesan

I love pasta in any way, shape or form. This bow-tie pasta caught my eye from Curtis Stone's What's For Dinner cookbook. Besides the obvious this recipe includes olive oil, shallots, garlic, dry white wine, thyme, corn, heavy cream and Parmesan cheese. I enjoyed this pasta but my husband gave it a meh. I think that there is too much heavy cream in this recipe and it sort of drowns out all the other lovely flavors. The recipe also calls for chives which I did not have but I did put extra fresh thyme on top and that did help up the flavor. I would make this again but add less cream.

This recipe is available from The Recipe Link.

  2. I would not have that problem. Bob loves cream. The bow ties made this dish extra special.

  5. My hubby is one of those who prefer tomato based pasta than cream. But my kids love creamy pasta, so this would be a winner with my kids!

  6. That looks so pretty with the bow ties and the corn is such an unusual addition but does sound good.

  7. This is a recipe that appealed to me the very first time I spotted it in his cookbook. I'm looking forward to making it when corn makes it debut here. I will definitely consider your tip about the cream when the time comes. It certainly does look delicious:)

  8. Great tip to reduce the cream in this one. As for bow ties - they are easily my favourite pasta shape.

  10. This looks good. I know my daughter would want to try it. Her family eats pasta a at least twice a week.
