"Farfalle" translates into English as “butterflies” and this was, for our family, a “special-occasion” cut of pasta. Our farfalle is made in Italy from All-Durham wheat, and formed on brass dies (which provides a rougher surface-texture for better sauce adhesion).
During the Lenten season, meatless Friday dinners often found this unique pasta floating in a light marinara tomato sauce with green peas. After each of us was served, the tin-plated cheese-grater was passed to each of us in turn. We would crank the handle for ourselves and watch as short strands of curly Pecorino Romano floated down on our plate.
This beautiful pasta shape was also one of our mother’s favorite for cold vegetables pasta dishes in summertime. We hope that DiCamillo pasta helps you to make your own family pasta memories, too!
