Farfalle, commonly known a "bow tie pasta" comes in various sizes. I chose the smaller farfalle as cheese and rich sauce coats really well on it. It is also an exciting shape for kids to try. The key to any baked pasta dish such as this one is not to overcook the farfalle. It should be slightly underdone before baking it so that the pasta retains its texture after baking.It is a delicious one pot vegetarian dish that is novel to your guests, but simple enough for a midweek dinner.
