January 7, 2023: Pastina + Turtles
January 15th, 2023 by Alex Koster

For a while now I have been seeing the cutest star-shaped pasta called Pastina all over social media and after grocery store hunting I finally found a box! I decided to make it in the traditional manner and used Alex Santos’s recipe from (this recipe) which was super easy and really fast.

The ingredients you will need are:

  • 3 cups chicken broth, total
  • 1 cup Pastina pasts
  • 1/ 3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • Salt & pepper

Reserve 1 cup of the chicken broth. Then boil the remaining 2 cups of your chicken broth with the Pastina pasta for about 6 minutes, stirring from time to time. Remove the pasta from the heat and add in the cheese, egg, and pepper. If it’s too thick add more of the broth. Serve with more cheese, salt, and pepper and enjoy!

Healthy Chocolate Turtles

For dessert, I made healthy (or at least healthier) chocolate turtles. The recipe is quick and easy and only you can probably make it with the ingredients you have on hand.

Melt the dark chocolate and let cool slightly. Pit and flatten the dates, then layer on your nut butter and pecans. Coat in melted chocolate and salt then place in the freezer to harden and enjoy! These were a perfect quick dessert and disappeared fast!

  • Medjool dates
  • Any type of nut butter (I used peanut)
  • Pecans
  • Dark chocolate
  • Salt
