My mom used to cook pastina for us kids a lot, she had four kids and she always made sure that we always had some kind of protein in us. So the eggs of course was one of them, She even used to make it without the eggs when we used to have the flu it was like a chicken soup but without the chicken. We loved it . I remember she even used to poach eggs in her sauce and that was yummy. She used to make the pastina for my kids when they were toddlers and they loved it now they ask me a lot to make it for them.
