Servings 4 Servings


  • 1 Chicken Leg with bone
  • 2 Carrots
  • 1 Celery Stalk
  • 1/2 Onion (small)
  • 4 Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 Potatoes (medium)
  • 4 cups Pastina (I use Grattoni)
  • Salt to taste
  • Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese grated
  • Crust of Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese


  • In a large pot I put the celery, carrots, peeled potatoes, halved cherry tomatoes and onion.
  • I add the chicken, cover with water and add a tablespoon of salt.
  • To make it more delicious, I add a piece of Parmesan cheese crust.
  • I put the pot on the stove and let it cook for about two hours over medium heat, occasionally removing the foam that forms at the top.
  • After two hours have elapsed, I put the pastina on to cook.
  • I pour the pastina onto plates and with the help of a strainer, strain the broth and add it to the pastina.
  • To finish, I sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.


My children do not like to have pieces of chicken on their plates.
Sometimes I just add a piece of potato or carrot.
