Search for the stars!
Pastina, or "little pasta," is a small, star-shaped pasta, and when we say small, we mean small! Pastina is a common, Italian childhood dish (I ate my fair share growing up). Not only is it fun to sit down to a bowl of tiny stars, but it's such a tasty dish that you can "beef up" to serve to adults, too. There are many ways you can serve pastina, but this recipe was inspired from the cookbook, Weeknights with Giada, by Giada De Laurentiis.
I used 6 ounces of pastina and 6 ounces of orzo pasta in this recipe. You can use either all pastina, or split it like we did and use any type of small pasta.
