Farfalle, dating back to the 1500s, originated in the Lombardia and Emilia-Romagna part of Northern Italy. Farfalle, which means “butterfly” in Italian, are rectangular or oval pieces of pasta that are pinched in the middle.
Farfalle are versatile and are perfect in many dishes. Served hot, they are good with simple olive oil, butter, tomato and cheese-based sauces. Served cold, they are perfect for pasta salads.
PLUS pairs well with tomato-based sauces and sauces with lots of fresh vegetables. Oil-based sauces work well with all PLUS shapes. Typically we do not recommend using meat-based sauces with PLUS shapes.
Cook Barilla PLUS® in boiling water 10 minutes, then drain and serve according to the recipe directions. For more tender pasta, boil an additional minute. Due to its higher protein content Barilla PLUS® takes several extra minutes to cook than traditional pasta.
