Yeah, but when you eat it cold it is like eating a bowl of salsa with a spoon, good, but strange..................

If you use more pasta than I do I might be tempted to make it separately, cool under cold water, and then add it. That might help it not cook more when reheated - maybe?
I've been using acini de pepe a lot in my soups. I love cooking soups as it's economical, hearty and easy. The acini de pepe seems to give enough body without getting mushy as some of the larger pastas. I made pasta e fagoli with tubettini, but it absorbed all the liquid. I'm making lentil tomorrow, no starch in it though, just lentils, spinach and keilbasa.
