A note about serious food allergies

We used farfalle pasta because of its ability to hold on to the dish’s light sauce. Farfalle is a type of pasta commonly known as ‘bow-tie pasta’, the name is derived from the Italian word farfalle for ‘butterfly’. The bow tie shape of farfalle noodles catches sauce and seasoning in the center folds of the pasta's unique shape. It works well in both warm dishes and cold pasta salads, particularly for lighter sauces. Cooking farfalle so it is al dente, or has a firm texture, helps the pasta hold its shape and allows sauces to cling to it more easily. It’s cold outside, but hopefully this fresh pasta dish will help remind you of those warm summer days!

Recipe Steps

  • Step 1 - Cook the Pasta
    1

    Cook the Pasta

    Fill a medium sized pot with 2 qt of water and add a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Once boiling, add pasta to the pot. Place a lid on the pot and bring it back to a boil. Lower the heat to maintain a rapid simmer. Simmer the pasta for 10 minutes, stirring the pasta occasionally so the pasta does not stick and cooks evenly. Drain the pasta and cool it with cold running water. Reserve for plating.
