Zitone is a delicious, larger variation of the classic Zita.
In the south of Italy, the term "Zita" means the bride and as a matter of fact, this type of pasta is traditionally associated with weddings and is always served at wedding receptions.
Tradition has it that Zitone , which is quite thick with a fairly rough texture, is broken by hand into uneven pieces, before being put in the saucepan to cook.
Zitone Tagliato ( "tagliato" means cut) has been made shorter for a more practical use in cooking.
Zitone Tagliato can be used to prepare oven-baked recipes or plates of pasta served with dense, colourful sauces of meat of fish, with green vegetables or vegetables or strong Italian cheeses such as pecorino, provolone or caciocavallo.

Conchiglie Rigate (ridged shells), which originate from the Campania region, are now very popular all over Italy.
The name comes from the shape which resembles a seashell and is one of the most popular pasta shapes because it can capture any kind of sauce.
This pasta is especially good in oven-baked recipes, with fish or meat sauces, as well as being excellent when accompanied by light tomato sauces, with ricotta or pesto alla genovese
