Pasta shapes that resemble small animals found in the garden or in fields are not uncommon.
The origins of Galletti (cockerels) are uncertain, but may well come from the Liguria region.
The shape is the same as Chifferi Rigati with the addition of a crimped line along the top edge that resembles a cockerel's crest.
The double-ended opening and the distinctive ridges mean that this pasta is perfect with less dense, more liquid sauces, all of which are captured inside it.
Galletti are excellent just with a simple tomato sauce, but are also delicious with sauces made from beef or pork or vegetables.

Farfalle Medie are a delicious, delicate variation of the larger Farfalle which are very popular and well-loved all over Italy. The name is derived from the typical bow tie shape.
They are also recommended for recipes based on tomato sauce and cheese with creamy condiments which spread out well over the entire surface of the pasta. This pasta is also excellent for preparing salads.
