The word has an obvious meaning in the Italian language, and refers to the wings of a butterfly, which the pasta resembles. In industrial production, the sallest format, which is ideal for soups, has a single pinch in the center (as opposed to the double pinch of large size Farfalle) and the name varies according to the dimensions. They are also known as Canestri (baskets), Canestrini (small baskets), Nastrini (ribbons), Nodini (Knots).
