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.

Farfalloni are originally from the north of Italy and traditionally known by local names such as "Fiocconi" and "Galle Genovesi". Historically, there were numerous varieties spread throughout the Abruzzo and Apulia regions, as well as the Bologna area.
The typical shape is rectangular with a scallop edge, pinched together in the centre.
The condiments recommended for Farfalloni 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.
