Ziti Corti Rigati from Afeltra are made with 100% Italian Durum Wheat Semolina mixed with water from Gragnano. Afeltra only uses traditional bronze extruding machines, giving the artisanal pasta a rough texture with many pores which help to better absorb the pasta sauce when finishing the dish. Afeltra Ziti Corti Rigati are also slowly dried at a low temperature for up to 48 hours which helps the protein structure in the pasta stay strong allowing for a better al dente texture!
Ziti Corti Rigati is a typical neapolitan shape of pasta. The word Ziti in neapolitan dialect means the betrothed or the bridegroom. Ziti pasta are usually served as the first course of a wedding reception.
