Garofalo Farfalle are bow-tie shaped pasta. This shape of pasta is obtained by pinching a square dough of pasta right in the centre. The name comes from the Italian word Farfalla, meaning Butterfly. The pinched middle of Garofalo Farfalle helps keep them al dente when cooked and catches a little of the sauce.
Garofalo Farfalle are a shape of short pasta that intrigues both adults and children. Due to its smooth surface, it is often served with light vegetable sauces as a summer pasta dish or in pasta salads.
Garofalo was established in 1789 in Gragnano, the homeland of pasta. The climatic conditions of the area are perfect for drying pasta, and the presence of spring water that originally fed the mills, made Gragnano the ideal place for the production of pasta.
