Variation Ziti with Roasted Vegetables and Cheese: Add some crumbled goat cheese or grated Fontina when you toss the ziti. Or, put the finished pasta in an ovenproof baking dish, top with either of these two cheeses, and run it under the broiler until the cheese is golden brown.
A dish such as this is reminiscent of the cuisine of Southern France, and a red wine from Provence, such as a Bandol or a Côtes de Provence, would make a good pairing.
