Sick Day Pasta
Having not eaten for the day, by late last night I was hungry but couldn't stand the thought of food - an odd conflict within. So, I made what my mother might have made me when I was a little girl - some little pasta with just a touch of butter, salt, and pepper, which caused no problems and eased the hunger pangs.
Today is a new day.
Sick Day Pasta - so simple, yet so soothing
Small pasta, like acini de pepe or ditalini, cooked and drained
Pat of butter
little salt and pepper
...and, if you're feeling up to it, transform this simple dish to Pastina:
one beaten egg
grated parmesan, romano cheese
a little sprinkling of your favorite herbs
(beat egg and stir with drained, hot pasta, cheese, and herbs over low heat until egg is cooked through).
Hope you all have a great weekend!
