After happily boiling my acini de pepe to Frogeye perfection, I went to drain them. I needed to use my strainer because they are so small, and it gave out on me!!! Arrrrghhhhh! A pound of pasta literally DOWN THE DRAIN. Dumb strainer... I even scalded myself in an attempt to save the stuff!
The only saving grace is that I picked up an extra box to keep in the pantry today. So now I am not as happily boiling the 2nd batch, but I'm grateful that I am not having to make a 10pm run to the grocery store.
When it's done, I will use this little made up contraption below. It's the best I've got for now. Do they make colanders with really small acini de pepe-proof holes? That's what I'd REALLY like to know.
