Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup uncooked pastina pasta
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk plus more if needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Cook the pastina in a small saucepan according to the package instructions. Drain pasta.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, beat together the egg, parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup milk, and tarragon.
  3. While the pasta is draining, melt the butter in the saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Add the drained pasta to the pan.
  5. Pour in the egg mixture while stirring constantly. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until the cheese begins to melt (the egg will cook in the process).
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
