i am a small person, so i like all things tiny. such tiny things as puntalette. mostly used in soups, i use it as a tiny pasta for this weeks presto pasta night in my refreshing summer salad: my puntalette salad with water melon and goats cheese.
i'd like to give you deccent recipes, but find it very hard to give exact measurements for this recipe. really, just throw in as much of the ingredients as you like. but since the puncalette are so tiny, make sure you dice and cube everything in tiny, cute little pieces. you dont want them to compete with the pasta, do you? - now go and enjoy summer!
