The best pastina recipe ever!

Pastina is my family’s version of windex. Are you sick? Pastina. Is it cold out? Pastina. Bad day? just have some Pastina. It is the ultimate family friendly comfort food. The adults crave it. Toddlers love it and babies devour it. It is a super simple, come together quickly, flavor packed, satisfying meal. Eggs included so, protein! A box of pastina goes a long way so chances are you’ll always have the very few ingredients needed on hand.


  • 1/2 cup pastina
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper


  • Bring a non-stick pot filled with water to a boil on stovetop
  • beat one egg
  • add in your pastina (cook for 6 – 7 minutes)
  • drain pasta and add back into pot immediately (pot should be hot so egg can cook)
  • add in beaten egg and stir till egg is cooked through. About a minute
  • stir in parmesan cheese and black pepper
  • serve immediately or transfer to a storage container and store in refrigerator

That’s it! So easy and so delicious. Let me know if you try this pastina recipe. Message me here or over on IG @vinessarae. Tag me on IG if you try this recipe and take pictures. I love seeing what you guys make.
