  1. I work just down the road from Spuntino, and really enjoy the place when I go. But sometimes it’s tough to get there because of all the congestion on Rt.3, so it’s good to know how to make something like this at home for those times. Thanks for providing us with the recipe!

    (FWIW, I make my own ricotta at home – https://dangerdangerwordpresscom.wordpress.com/2016/08/14/whey-to-go/ – as I really find it far superior in all applications. So simple to make, too. I recommend every self respecting eater try it ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  2. I agree with you, the guys at Spuntino do a great job and I like the wine list a whole lot.
