The perfect comfort food for a cold, rainy or snowy day. This elevated chicken soup with greens, pastina and tiny meatballs will be your new go-to if you’re feeling under the weather or when you need a cozy comfort meal.
Simple Chicken Stock
Serve soup ladled over pastina (orzo or star shaped mini pasta) and greens (spinach, kale, or escarole) and top with your best grated parmesan cheese.
Pip Tip: Make ahead and freeze in individual or family sized portions. Good for 4 months.
Pip Tip: Do NOT add your pastina directly to your soup pot. Cook separately and store separately. If you freeze or store your pastina in your soup it will act like a sponge and soak up all your liquid.
Pip Tip: Spinach wilts fast. Add raw spinach and cooked pastina directly to your bowl and ladle over hot soup. It’s hot enough to wilt the spinach!
Pip Tip: Don’t skimp on the parmesan cheese. Splurge on a good quality cheese and it will make a big difference.
