Farfalle is a bow-tie shaped pasta. It is derived from the Italian word "Farfalla" which means a butterfly.
Today's recipe has been inspired by the pasta recipe at Sheba's blog- Art, Food and Travel Chronicles. She has an awesome space and it is indeed about art, food and travel as the same specifies..In short its a celebration of life...Sheba has shared 'I love your Yummylicious Food Blog' award with me. Also let me mention Maya and Lakshmi these talented buddies from Yummy O Yummy.. In a short span of time they have won many hearts(or should I say stomachs) with their yummylicious recipes. They have shared a bunch of awards with me as well. Thanks Sheba, Maya and Lakshmi.
