Farfalle : The Farfalle cut originates before 1500 in Lombardy and Emilia Romagna, in northern Italy. The name is derived from the Italian word farfalla : butterfly. The “e” at the end of the word is the ending of the Italian feminine plural, so the literal meaning of the word is butterflies. Due to its shape, this type of pasta is also referred to as: bow ties, neckties (in Chile), bows (in Venezuela), ribbons or bows.

The farfalle are the classic pasta that combines well with all kinds of sauces and being shorter they are easier for children to eat; It is also very popular because it combines very well with creamy sauces since having this jagged shape the sauce is better impregnated than in smooth pasta such as noodles .

This pasta shows a double texture: lighter at the ends and thicker towards the center, making it very delicate to cook.
