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.

Filini (little threads) are very thin strips of pasta that are a great addition to simple first courses made with broth.
Filini are mainly enjoyed in soups, with light, tasty broths enhanced with croutons or vegetables cut into julienne strips.
This pasta can also be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.
