This pastina with mushroom leek parmesan broth is the perfect easy weeknight comfort meal.

The Deets

Every time it starts to get a little chilly out, I feel like pastina resurfaces on the internet, and honestly, it’s for good reason. It’s cozy, comforting and delicious. This is pastina with a mushroom leek parmesan broth and then I stirred in an egg and topped with more cheese and cracked pepper. I had made this delicious parmesan and leek broth earlier in the week, so decided to use it in this, BUT regular broth would also be delicious. The mushroom and leek broth just adds a little extra something! Mushrooms are one of my favorite veggies to cook with because they add some heartiness and texture.

I love using a Dutch oven for this type of thing, and my favorite is from Le Creuset! So, as the temperatures dip and your cravings begin for a comfort meal, look no further than a steaming bowl of pastina in mushroom leek parmesan broth! I love the addition of an egg in this dish as it gives it a little texture. It’s perfect for a cozy weeknight meal, potluck dinner party, or hey, just for one (talk about leftovers for days!).
