For people of you who read the recipe earlier mentioned and are now contemplating to yourselves, “this is NOT the variation I grew up with,” by no means dread. As outlined, pastina recipes are inclined to vary rather heavily from particular person to individual, so here are some equally-delicious variants that are entirely value seeking, if you would like:
• Brothy, No-Egg Pastina — Use double the total of inventory known as for in the recipe earlier mentioned, omit the egg and butter, and wait to incorporate your parm and black pepper until finally you have ladled the soup into bowls for serving. This model is in particular fantastic for tiny young children, FYI!
• Pastina with Veggies — Sauté some finely diced onion, celery, and carrot in butter or olive oil right until just softened right before including your stock and bringing everything to a boil.
• Rooster-y Pastina — Start out with the strategy for possibly of the variations higher than (it truly is up to you!), introducing pre-cooked shredded or cubed rooster to the boiling stock at the identical time you stir in the uncooked pastina.
