I was just about to print this off, fundj, so thanks for the posting. 

What sort of results have other people had with this one?  It looked Cuilidh-proof to me!

Fundj, I'm sorry if the pastina didn't work with you but I make the same recipe for years now and I assure you it works. I think the problem is only that, without pictures, you don't realise how the pasta would come out and, as I told you, I cannot add pictures for the time being, so what I though is this: I put the link of the same recipe on an Italian tmx site with pictures on it. I hope that's nothing wrong about putting links of other sites, otherwise you will let me know, ok?
This is the link: http://www.cookaround.com/yabbse1/showthread.php?t=186905&page=1
As you can see making this pastina, as I told you, it's very easy and you can change the recipes adding some parmesan cheese, or parsley... Be sure of it, Fundj, if you need pastina for the winter, this is the right recipe... ;) ;) ;)

I was puzzled about the way the pastina should look but your link explains it all:  Thanks!

Follow the instructions and the pictures and you will see how easy it is and when the pastina does not cut (it could depend on eggs diminution or flour humidity) then you only have to add a little more of flour and have a look until is not the diminution you want..

As they say "A picture says a thousand words" and it's so very true in this case.

After checking out the photos I made this on the weekend.  My pastina was more like bread crumbs not little balls so I put a bit of water in (too much) then a bit more flour and kept doing that until it looked right!!!  I don't think my egg was big enough but adding the water/flour to acheive the right mix was pretty easy - just keep adding til you get there!

Then I didn't read the recipe properly and used two tablespoons of tomato paste instead of puree lol.  It was very tomatoey and a wee bit bland (I had chucked in the veg rather than use the stock).  After being in the fridge overnight it had thickened up and I added some of my chicken stock paste for flavour.  The orangeyness from the tomato paste and the texture of the pastina reminded me of tinned spaghetti but 100 times better - I thought I would mention it here as some people may have kids that like spaghetti on toast and I would use this recipe for that.  Just make sure you make it the day before so it thickens in the fridge.  Much tastier and healthier  ;D
