Ingredients

  • 4 cups chicken broth/stock
  • 2 cups small pasta shapes – pastina/stelline/orzo
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano cheese
  • black pepper
  • Salt to taste (you probably won’t need any)
  • fresh basil (parsley works well too)

Instructions

  • Bring the chicken stock to a boil.
  • Add the pasta and stir well
  • Turn the heat down to a very gently simmer and cook the pasta as per the packet instructions. Ensure you stir it during the cooking as you are only using a small amount of stock. (see notes)
  • Once the pasta is cooked, remove it from the heat and stir in the butter.
  • Use a slotted spoon to divide the pasta between the serving bowls.
  • Pour over the chicken stock. (See notes)
  • Add the parmesan, plenty of black pepper and garnish with your fresh herbs.
