Try Barilla's Ziti from our Classic Blue Box pastas. This popular tube pasta is great with light sauces or in baked casserole dishes.

Short shapes

Ziti, the ever-popular tube-shaped pasta, gets its name from the word “zita”, or bride. In Naples, Ziti is the classic pasta served for weddings as the “zita’s pasta.”

In Campania and Sicily, baked Ziti has long been served at wedding celebration banquets, and this delicious, romantic tradition continues today.

Try Ziti with fresh, light sauces – like olive oil or a simple fresh tomato sauce. Ziti is also great for baked casserole dishes, known as "pasta al forno", which are delicious with cheese-based sauces.

01. Bring 4 - 6 quarts of water to a rolling boil, add salt to taste.
02. Add contents of package to boiling water. Stir gently.
