Piccolini Mini Farfalle are a miniature version of Farfalle, also often called bow tie pasta. These fanciful shapes are inspired by butterflies and bring cheer to any family dinner. Piccolini Mini Farfalle are great with intense fragrances and flavors as well as with light vegetable or fish sauces, dairy-based sauces, simple oil-based sauces, or in pasta salads.
Like their big sisters, Piccolini Mini Farfalle are small rectangular pieces of pasta that are pinched in the middle to create a graceful form and unique taste and texture for a variety of family-friendly dishes.
Served hot, Piccolini Mini Farfalle are perfectly complemented with a simple olive oil, butter, tomato or cheese-based sauce. Served cold, they are ideal for pasta salads.
