Serve the breadsticks along with other bread for a meal, or with hors d’oeuvres. In Parma, they wrap transparently thin slices of prosciutto around breadsticks as a little nibble with drinks before dinner.
Keep the breadsticks loosely covered with plastic wrap on the day they are baked. Store them between sheets of wax paper in a tin or plastic container with a tight-fitting lid. In a cool place, they’ll stay fresh for a week or two.
