Wikipedia: Farfalle
Farfalle (Italian: [farˈfalle]) are a type of pasta commonly known as bow-tie pasta or butterfly pasta. The name is derived from the Italian word farfalle (butterflies). In the Italian city of Modena, farfalle are known as strichetti. A larger variation of farfalle is known as farfalloni, while the miniature version is called farfalline. Farfalle date back to the 16th century in the Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna regions of Northern Italy.

Mis-heard that Stooshe song as ‘Daddy I’ve fallen for some pasta’. Set me thinking, if I had a relationship with pasta it would be farfalle.

A short waiter at an Italian restaurant slipped on some spilled pasta and fell, but don’t worry, it wasn’t a farfalle.

Just opened the cereal cupboard and some pasta fell out.
It’s okay. It didn’t farfalle.
