Ziti is a typical type of pasta from the Naples area. It is made from Italian durum wheat using traditional artisanal methods. Ziti pasta is made using the so-called “Bronze-drawn” method, in which the pasta is pressed into its shape faster than normal. In the method, the paste has a special, slightly rougher structure than usual and is dried at a low temperature. Due to the roughness, however, the pasta absorbs more of the sauce’s flavors. Ziti pasta is especially suitable for rich oven pastes. It can also be served with a rich sauce cooked as it is. The tubes of Ziti paste are usually cut into smaller pieces before cooking.
