“Pastina has healing powers,” Rossella Rago, author of Cooking with Nonna, writes in the headnote for her Stelline Pastina with Parmigiano recipe. Served as a soup—prepared with just water, chicken bouillon and Parmesan cheese—Rago deems the dish “Italian penicillin.” “It warms the heart and the stomach, and brings back so many fond childhood memories of my nonna cooking for me.”
Thankfully, we have our Pastina Pantry fully stocked and have even brought new variations into the fold including the official Barilla Pastina. Fear not, your Italian Penicillan prescription can still be filled at Bottega della Nonna.
