Pork and Mushroom Farfalle #PPN

I am submitting this recipe for Pork And Mushroom Farfalle to Presto Pasta Nights, which is being hosted this week by HoneyB who blogs over at The Life and Loves of Grumpy’s Honeybunch

Farfalle is the Italian word for butterfly and is the best word used to describe this shape of pasta, even though it is more commonly known as bow tie pasta. I decided to make my own, and butterfly wings is a more apt name, given how fragile the pasta was. Also, they are not easy to make, they need patience and time and a lot of experimenting went in to making them. You will see this if you look closely at all the shapes and sizes.  You need to start with a rectangular piece of pasta – then trim the edges using a ravioli cutter and then lightly pinch the middle together. However, this would be a fun thing to do with kids – you cut the pasta and they do the shaping.  I am sharing the sauce recipe as you could use any pasta, but, you will have to have some leftover meat to make this with as I did.
