Pastina is a delightful combination of small pearl pasta boiled in chicken broth, then thickened (to an oatmeal consistency) with eggs, butter and Parmesan cheese. (Think of it like a grownup version of mac 'n cheese!)  It's a simple dish that really hits the spot when you are chilled to the bone and no amount of cozy blankets or thick socks will warm you up. Not surprisingly, this comfort meal is also perfect when you're feeling under the weather. 

I lovingly refer to this dish as the "pantry pasta" because it's really just a delicious mix of whatever I have on hand! It's incredibly versatile and the unlikely combination of flavors will surprisingly become a regular addition to your monthly meal plan!
