De Cecco Past Farfalline have a rectangular shape with an oval scalloped border and a tight frill in the middle. Since they are so small, they are best for children and in broths, with croutons or with thinly sliced vegetable strips. Excellent also in thicker creamy soups. Since 1886 we have liked our pasta to be bronze drawn and slowly dried because we like it to fall into the plate full of taste, rough and always "al dente". Even though our taste has not changed, as we feel the same love for tradition, we have continued to improve our production technologies.
