Farfalline (little butterflies), originally from northern Italy, are rectangular with a scalloped edge, pinched together in the centre.
The tiny, whimsical shape means they appeal to children in particular who associate them with the animal kingdom.
Thanks to the notched edge and the tiny curved wings, Farfalline are a perfect shape for hearty soups with croutons or vegetables cut into julienne strips.
This pasta can be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.

This is a smaller version of classic Penne rigate, that as ever features its trademark diagonal cut ends: Pennette Rigate is also available in the 7-grain version, for a balanced dish nutritionally speaking, without any compromises in delicious flavour.
The Pennette Rigate is ideal for pasta dishes served with sauces and paired with beef or pork-based ragù. This pasta is also perfect with vegetable-based sauces – aubergine, peppers, courgettes, artichokes – or more inventive fish-based dishes.
