Rummo zite, or ziti, no. 10 is an Italian pasta shape that was traditionally cooked for wedding breakfasts. The surface of the bronze-die extruded durum wheat zite pasta will cling to your meat or fish sauce. Zite is also excellent with roasted aubergines and plenty or provolone or pecorino cheese. Rummo zite pasta cooks in 9 minutes.

The name ‘ziti’ comes from the Italian word ‘zito’, which means ‘bridegroom’.

About Rummo Pasta

Taking your time is key to the Italian way of life, and the Rummo family were traditional. When cooking pasta al dente you need to time it ‘just so’, yet they hated this rigour. The family wanted to create the only pasta certified to remain al dente and keep its shape during cooking. Even when you cook it for too long.

The Rummo family tested many different flours before finding the perfect durum wheat, and many different production methods before finding the perfect process. And so Rummo's famous method — Lente Lavorazione or ‘relax’ — was born!

Today, each packet of Rummo pasta promises eccezionale tenuta all cottura—“exceptionally firm when cooked”. Whether the pasta cooks for 5 minutes too long in the pan, or it waits in sauce for 20 minutes whilst everyone comes to the table, you will have perfect pasta every time.
