These crumbs are delicious sprinkled over pasta.
  • 3 cups fine fresh sourdough bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Fine sea salt to taste
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Spread crumbs in a shallow baking pan and bake in middle of oven, stirring occasionally, until golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer crumbs to a bowl, then drizzle with oil and season with sea salt. Stir until crumbs are coated.
Cooks' note: Crumbs can be made 1 day ahead and kept, covered, at room temperature.
