The ever-popular, tube-shaped ziti gets its name from the word “zita” – the “little girl.” In Campania and Sicily, baked ziti has long been served at wedding celebration banquets, and this delicious, romantic tradition continues today. Ziti is best paired with tomato-based sauces and is often used in baked dishes. Fresh, light sauces (like olive oil or simple fresh tomato) also work best with smooth shaped ziti, since it does not have the benefit of ridges to hold more sauce.
