Little Italy Favorites: Bowtie Aglio

Written on January 31, 2013

By now, you’ve gotten Aglio Butter and White Wine Sauce under your belt, and now it’s time to bring all of your skills together to create one of our favorite Classic Pastas, Bowtie Aglio.

Bowtie Aglio

Serves 4
2 ½ lbs bowtie or farfalle pasta
1 Tbsp soybean oil
1 Tbsp salt
1 ½ cups Aglio Butter
8 Tbsp sun-dried tomatoes
1 ½ cups White Wine Sauce
½ lb broccolini
¼ lb spinach
4 Tbsp parmesan, grated
4 Tbsp parmesan, grated, for garnish

Bring water to a boil and add soybean oil and salt. Then add pasta and cook for 5-7 minutes.
Drain (do not rinse) and set aside.
In a sauté pan, heat Aglio Butter for approximately 20 seconds, and then add broccolini, sundried tomatoes, and White Wine Sauce. Bring to a simmer then add the reserved pasta.
Bring back to a simmer and gently fold in 4 Tbsp grated parmesan.
Place in a large bowl and sprinkle with remaining parmesan and serve hot.

    I certainly have heard several positive things about Maggiano’s Little Italy but unfortunately for me, I have never tried to dine there. I am really hoping that one of these days, I will get to visit them and eat everything that my stomach will permit. As for now, I will just settle with whatever my cooking abilities will give me on this recipe. Thank you for sharing.

  • Lety

    WHY IS THIS NO LONGER BEING SERVED?!?!? :( It was my favorite thing on the menu!!

  • SoWrong

    Why the heck did you take it off the menu?????????????????

  • Another unhappy customer

    I agree with the above comments…..Bowtie Aglio was my favorite Maggiono dish. I would get this dish for my “eat in” choice and my “take home” choice. I LOVE IT! I am so disappointed they have removed it! What can we do to GET BOWTIE AGLIO back on the menu! I have no desire to return.. The other classic pasta dishes do not compare.

    This was a wonderful dish It is a shame you took it off the menu.I just went there and took 4 other people with me needless to say unless you bring that dish back I really don’t want to dine at Maggiano’s again.

  • veronica parker

    please,please,please bring this back.

  • Anna Lopata

    This was my favorite dish as well! I don’t care for the new revised classic pasta specials menu, everything is in red sauce…I think this needs to be put back on the menu. I also feel the same as the previous person…I don’t go to Maggiano’s as much as I use to..because my favorite dish and take home dish is no longer being served… I don’t even see it on the regular menu…

  • Barbara

    I’m so glad you have this dish on the menu now. I will come and dine now that you have it. Thanks….Keep it on ….Don’t take it away again. If you know a dish is a good seller why do you get rid of it?

  • pattie

    is the recipe correct. 2 1/2 pounds fo pasta?

  • Lisa Gutierrez

    Yes, please, please bring back Bowtie Aglio, its just not the same experience at Maggiano’s without it!!!
