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 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.

Pennettine are a delicious, shorter variation of Penne Piccole Lisce.
The smaller-sized Pennette are perfect for stirring up with creamy sauces, both red ones made with tomatoes or white ones made with cheese, or with classic vegetable soups to be eaten with a spoon.
Try them with light sauces too, made from fresh tomatoes, oil and basil.
