Rustichella d'Abruzzo Farfalloni, meaning "big butterflies" in Italian, are a bigger bow-tie than those commonly available, bearing soft ridges on the surface in order for the pasta sauce to adhere to it.
Childhood memories remind us of tomato and cream sauce dusted with abundant Parmigiano, as well as old fashion classics such as vodka sauce or salmon and cream sauce at Grandmother's table. A children's favorite, these bow-ties are also ideal for use in pasta salads.
The origins of macaroni, and therefore of pasta, date back in time to the historic period of ancient Romans. Apicio, Roman writer of the first century A.D., writes about a pasta prepared “to enclose pasta timbales and pies” named “Lagana”. The first historical quote concerning the cooking of pasta boiling in in water belongs to the Arabs, that probably introduced the dry pasta during the conquest of Sicily.
