Pastina reminds me of when I was a kid, this is comfort food - boil water and cook pastina according to directions, until most of the water is absorbed. Turn off heat and add a slightly-beaten egg, letting cook on the hot pasta. Add some butter, parmesean cheese and a little pepper.
This Pasta with Chicken Broth, Butter and Parmesan is pure comfort food! It is a bowl of wonderful, warming, healing amazingness. One spoonful and you know the world is going to start looking brighter. A whole bowl and you feel restored. Honestly is there anything better than a big bowl of chicken noodle soup??
