How to serve pasta as finger food, and Nepali Italian finger foods.

Hi all,

I'm going to be "catering" an engagement party for my best friend. She is Italian and her fiance is Nepali. I would like the food to be mostly finger foods that represents both of their culinary cultures in various ways.

My first question: Is there a way to serve pasta as a finger food? I'd like to serve some pasta of some sort (thinking like a Nepali spiced carbonara/alfredo...or maybe tomato based), but I have no idea how to serve it in a finger food setting. Any suggestions?

Finally, if anyone has some ideas for Nepali/Italian fusion type dishes I'd appreciate any ideas. This is what I have floating around in my head so far:

Edit: Added some new ideas:
chicken chili tacos with momo sauce. (http://www.food-nepal.com/recipe/R051...)
Nepali spiced italian meatballs...on a stick or on bread?
Tandoori wings?
Bruschetta "carpaccio". rare Filet/Arugula/Parm/Caper/Lemon Juice/EVOO, tomato cilantro,
Fig ricotta honey balls wrapped in prosciutto.
Cucumber/cilantro/tomato/evoo "caprese"
meat on a stick
mini potato skins, alu dum style: http://www.food-nepal.com/recipe/R006...
curry puff pastry
Nepali lentil "hummus"
