This dish has to fall in to the category of Comfort Food Favorites.
Sometimes it's the only thing that will do when you are feeling sad or tired or just stressed out a little and need some comfort.
You could also go back to some fond memories of childhood if you had this growing up.
Simply, pastina, butter and cheese and your favorite bowl and spoon.
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup Pastina
Bring chicken broth to a boil over medium heat. Add pastina and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the chicken broth is absorbed, 5-6 minutes. Fill up your favorite bowl. Top with a pat of butter, parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper.
So go ahead, make your self a bowl.
You'll feel better!
Another comfort food favorite are my sister's meatballs!
