Serve the salad with slices of your favourite in-store bakery bread. The possibilities include filone, ciabatta, focaccia and piccolo red pepper.
Instead of penne, try another type of bite-sized pasta in this recipe, such as bow-tie or rotini. Instead of proscuitto, try another type of thinly sliced cured ham, such as serrano. Instead of Parmesan, try nuggets of a creamy cheese in the salad, such as goat or Gorgonzola.
