Pastina with butter

Pastina with butter

My Mom used to make me this when I was sick.

Since I have the flu  and a cold it is the only thing I want.

I always go back to my childhood for comfort food.

This takes ten minutes.

3 cups water

10 rounded tablespoons pastina

One teaspoon powdered chicken bouillon or 1/2 teaspoon salt. Do not use both it will be too salty.

One half teaspoon of butter in each bowl.

Boil the water

Add the salt and pastina

Stir so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

It cooks in about 6 to 8 minutes.

I always leave it on the stove without the heat so it thickens up a little.

Pour into a bowl and top with the butter not margarine.

It is easy on the stomach and it always makes me feel better.

This makes two good size portions.

I have also made this with homemade chicken broth instead of water….So good.

When you are feeling better, add some grated cheese.
