I would think it would work on fusilli as well.

Lori, I've used fettucine and also have used spaghetti noodles. I think it would work well with any thin pasta.

Oops! So sorry. I'm new to this. I just edited the recipe. It calls for 1/2 cup of heavy cream.

This recipes tells us to add corn, wine, cream, to the butter and shallots. HOWEVER, the ingredients DO NOT list CREAM!!
