Unfortunately, it will be a couple of weeks before I can reveal what changes we have made to our kitchen because of a back order.
No worries though…

Do you know what it is?
I didn’t until my husband showed me a box of it in the
pasta isle years ago (it’s there, but can be hard to find).
He also shared a lovely story about how his
Grandmother made this
for him as a child. It’s been a staple in our pantry ever since.
The girls love it, and never get tired of it.
It’s nice when you need something fast.
It’s also been known to cure a few belly aches,
or make someone sleepy.
The combination of texture and taste makes it the perfect comfort food.
The best part of Pastina is that it’s so easy to make.
Boil medium pot full of salted water. Add as much Pastina as you desire. A little goes a long way. Cook 10 minutes, strain water, but leave a little to mix with butter. Pour back into pot. Depending on how much butter you like, drop it in, add a little more salt along with pepper. The secret is to add a little milk at the end. Stir and serve immediately. Great alone, as a side dish, in soup, or with a salad.
