PGI Gragnano Pasta, 100% Italian durum wheat.
Short format with perforated circular section. The “ziti” (or “zite“) are the long format that is usually broken before cooking and traditionally served on Sundays or on important occasions. In this short version, they are perfect for those in a hurry but do not want to give up the taste of this incredible format.
“Zite” were single ladies – spinsters, in fact – who stayed at home on Sundays to break the pasta by hand, instead of going to mass.
Perfect with: Fish, meat or cheese sauces
Cook it like this: Boiled “al dente” into plenty salted water and mixed in a pan with sauce or baked in oven, for more tasty Sunday lunch with the family!
