Farfalle, originally from Lombardy and Emilia Romagna, take their name from their distinctive bow tie shape with a tight frill in the centre.
The condiments recommended for Farfalle are light sauces: sauces made from butter with peas and ham; white sauces with delicate flavours made from salmon and cream; sauces made from mild, soft cheeses with a dash of saffron or curry.
This pasta is also great for preparing delicious, colourful, imaginative pasta salads.
Available in 500g pack.
This type of pasta from the Fettucce family is unique because of its rough surface and thickness which is typical of extruded pasta.
Try it with ragù, sauces made from game, or fish and shellfish sauces.
