  1. there's a bread crumb pasta called passatelli you could try

    1. I saute them in olive oil (and sometimes a clove of minced garlic), then stash them in the freezer and use them to top pasta, either alone or mixed with Parm. You can also use them to top casseroles or gratins.

      I've made the bread crumb pasta before, as mentioned by bw2082--not sure what it's called but I believe it translates to "sand" something. That's where I got the idea to always keep some on hand.

      1. I freeze them and use them as needed.--toppings for gratin, breading, etc.

        1. I'm assuming these aren't the ones that you buy off the shelf? I like using breadcrumbs in Italian meatballs.
