Farfalle belong to the short pasta range from Barilla. They are born from a sheet of pasta cut into squares and "pinched" in the centre to create a bow tie ("farfallino") effect. They have a delicate surface and a different consistency between the thicker centre and the two ends. They are prepared using only the best durum wheat and water. Their texture can enhance the flavours of every sauce. Oro Chef is an exclusive line of pasta designed for restaurants and catering.
