Farfalle Pasta; Butterflies and Bow Ties
Farfalle style pasta originated in Italy in the 16th century and is actually one of the oldest known pasta shapes. Many of the old Italian pasta shapes were simply named after things that they resembled, which is where ‘farfalle’ comes from. In Italian, ‘farfalle’ (pronounced far-FALL-lay) means ‘butterfly’ – how cute!
