Pastina Soup is an Italian staple many kids eat when they're sick. It's just like chicken noodle soup, but with this fun stars as the noodle!
- 1 cup of Pastina pasta (also called Stelline)
- 4 cups of chicken broth (or 4 cups of water and 1 bullion cube)
- 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
- 1/2 cup diced celery
- 1 oz grated pecorino cheese
- black pepper and salt to taste
- Bring the chicken broth and diced onions and celery to a boil. Let it Ssimmer until the veggies are soft, about 20-25 minutes, then add salt if you think it needs it. (All chicken broths have different amounts of salt, so use your judgment!)
- Meanwhile, bring a small pot of water to a boil and cook 1 cup of pastina.
- When the pastina is cooked, drain it through a colander (or strainer, if you colander holes are too big)
- Divide pastina and broth among bowls and top each with pecorino and black pepper. Enjoy!
