How do you make "farfalle" or butterfly pasta shapes?

Butterflies (Farfalle) or (Strichetti)

To make "butterfly" pasta shapes, use a fluted pastry wheel and cut along each edge of a rectangular sheet of dough to serate it with the pastry wheel cutter; divide the sheet into rectangles (use a ruler to start with) 2 inches long, and 1 inch wide. Pinch the center of each rectangle to form butterflies.
