Expert Tips

  • To prevent lumps in the cheese sauce, use a wire whisk to stir in the flour and milk.
  • Ziti is a pasta that looks a little bit like its cousin, macaroni. Ziti is thicker and longer than macaroni and is more tube-shaped. It's a perfect pasta for chunky sauces, meat dishes and baked casseroles.
