Comforting Stars

What’s your ultimate comfort food? I’m guessing that it’s something heavy, savory, maybe buttery? We all have something…

Mine? Pastina.
Little star pasta, but prepared the way my family does it, the way my Gramma always used to. It’s super easy, quick, and delightful.

What you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup of Pastina
  • 1 bullion cube
  • 1 tbs butter
  • Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg


  • Boil about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of water and put in the bullion cube (not much more water, because you want the Pastina to absorb)
  • Add the Pastina
  • Cook about 4-6 minutes
  • When the bullion cube is about done slowly add in the butter and well-beaten egg and stir
  • Take off the heat
  • Add cheese
  • Enjoy!

Like I said, it’s super simple, super savory, and SUPER comforting!

Tell me about some of your favorite comfort foods in the comments – can’t wait to hear from you…maybe I’ll try a few of them out.
