Ziti is an extruded pasta, originating in Campania. It is shaped into a long, wide tube, about 25 cm long, that needs to be broken by hand into smaller pieces before cooking. Ziti are often stuffed and baked, where penne are sauced or used in pasta salads. Ziti in the US is most commonly associated with the Italian-American dish of baked ziti. In Sicily, it is traditionally served at a wedding feast.
Ziti is the plural form of zito, meaning "bride" or "groom" in Sicilian dialect.
