Tired of tall food? Here's long food--zitoni, a sort of giant macaroni. Three 40-inch strands (remembering that they're sold folded over and they may break at the bend) would make a single serving. Boil them in a large pot; as it cooks, the part under water will soften so you can eventually get the whole strand in.
Zitoni, 500-gram pack, $5.10, at Surfas, 8825 National Blvd., Culver City, (310) 559-4770.
