Farfalle date back to the 1500s, originating in the Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna areas of northern Italy. The Italian word for butterflies, farfalle (far-FAH-leh) are commonly called bow ties in the U.S.—literally, they look more like bow ties than butterflies, but the bow tie hadn’t been invented in the 1500s. Rectangular pieces of pasta are pinched in the middle to create the shape. They are versatile for most purposes and sauces, but showcase well with lighter and creamy sauces. Miniature farfalle are made for soups.
