What kind of pasta is shaped like a bowtie?

Answer:

Farfalle

Farfalle is a type of pasta that is also known as bow tie pasta or butterfly pasta for its signature shape. The word "farfalle" actually means "butterflies" in Italian. The pasta dates back to the 1500s, originating in Northern Italy in the Emilia-Romagna and Lombardia regions. Farfalle is also made in different sizes—the miniature size is called farfalline while the larger variety is named farfallone. To get the pasta's signature ruffled edges, a pair of pinking shears is used instead of a knife. Each rectangle is then firmly pinched in the middle to form the bow tie shape.
