Capellini (Italian pronunciation: [kapelˈliːni], literally "little hairs") is a very thin variety of Italian pasta, with a diameter between 0.85 and 0.92 millimetres (0.033 and 0.036 in). Like spaghetti, it is rod-shaped, in the form of long strands.
Farfalle is made by cutting fresh pasta into small rectangles and then pinching the centers together to form the bow-tie shape. Farfalle recipes often feature creamy sauces, like this creamy mushroom sauce, fresh tomato sauces or sauces featuring cheeses such as this alfredo sauce.
