Farfalle is instantly recognizable due to it’s fun, “bow-tie” shape with ruffled edges – a nod to it’s name which means “butterfly” in Italian. This classic Italian short pasta is great to serve with sauces that cling to the flat, generous shape and wrinkles– think hearty tomato or rich cheese and cream-based sauces. Like many short shapes (like penne), it’s also a wonderful pasta to serve with cold salads, paired with tuna, vegetables or to use for casseroles or au gratin pasta recipes – the nooks and crannies of the pasta capture the cheese and breadcrumbs deliciously.
Tealdi makes their farfalle with fresh barn eggs, which gives it that wonderful yellow color and intense flavor, using traditional Italian techniques like slow-drying at low temperatures for better texture and uniformity.
