Dating back to the 16th century, farfalle is one of Italy’s oldest cuts of pasta. The word “farfalle” means “butterfly” in Italian, but it’s also known for its bow tie shape. It’s a cut particularly good for serving with cream or tomato sauces. Our version is made using durum wheat semolina organically grown on a small cooperative of family farms in the rolling hills overlooking the Adriatic Sea. Try it with a creamy vodka sauce for a hearty dish the whole family will love.
Originally built in 1388, the idyllic Monastery of Montebello has long served as an emblem of agriculture in northern Italy. This is a region prized for its produce, a place where organic crops like hearty durum wheat and vine-ripened tomatoes are transformed by skilled artisans into impeccable air-dried pastas, robust sauces and more. Imported for you to enjoy, these delicious products deliver Italian excellence to any dish.
