Here is something that my little one adores! Pastina! He would eat it everyday if I would give it to him. Pastina can be made in so many different ways. If you do not know what pastina is, it is a pasta consisting of tiny pieces. You can buy it at any grocery store.

Here are some great ideas.

PASTINA EGG AND CHEESE

  • Cook your pastina pasta in boiling water. Don’t add to much water just enough for the pasta.
  • Once cooked. Leave on heat. Lower the heat to low
  • In a bowl mix together one egg and cheese about 1/4 cup.
  • Add to your pastina and mix together till the egg is cooked.
  • Let cool and serve.

*** Make sure you do not have to much water or else it taste like water***

PASTINA with RAW OIL (oglio crudo)

  • Cook your pastina pasta in boiling water, Add your salt. Don’t add to much water just enough for the pasta.
  • Once cooked, Strain but leave a little bit of water left over.
  • Add 1 TBSP  of oil ( Your choice) I use regular oil.
  • Let cool and serve.

*** If you have left over sauce you can also add 1-2 tbsp. of sauce.***

PASTINA WITH DIFFERENT PUREES
