There is absolutely nothing healthy about this!!! And that is why I love it! That is why I am sharing it and that is why I cooked it!

I do not feel well! I just want to get back into bed and sleep. Now this is completely and utterly my own fault! I had a glass of wine or 4 with friends last night and now I am feeling very sorry for myself.

I wanted comfort food but I also wanted something that didn’t require much effort in the kitchen.

So I made pasta with loads of butter and salty stock. Man it made me feel better!!! The key to this killing a hangover is the homemade chicken stock. It does just make the world better. If you don’t have any then use the best quality one you can buy in the store. It really does make a difference.

This is a traditional Italian dish that usually uses pastina, the small star like pasta shapes. I didn’t have them as to be honest they aren’t my favourite, I like pasta with a little more body to it, so I used these super cute teeny tiny tubes. Risoni/orzo would work well too. I actually planned to use risoni but I realised I used it all up in my Tomato Risoni Salad!!!

Really it works well with any small pasta shape. Don’t be put off by the butter in this, it is warm and comforting and just so good. You can imagine being sat at an Italian kitchen table and getting served big bowls of this by your Italian Nonna!

Enjoy x

Ingredients
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups small pasta shapes - pastina/stelline/orzo
  • 60 g (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano cheese
  • black pepper
  • Salt to taste (you probably won't need any)
  • fresh basil (parsley works well too)
Instructions
  1. Bring the chicken stock to a boil.
  2. Add the pasta and stir well
  3. Turn the heat down to a very gently simmer and cook the pasta as per the packet instructions. Ensure you stir it during the cooking as you are only using a small amount of stock.
  4. Once the pasta is cooked, remove it from the heat and stir in the butter.
  5. Use a slotted spoon to divide the pasta between the serving bowls.
  6. Pour over the chicken stock. (See notes)
  7. Add the parmesan, plenty of black pepper and garnish with your fresh herbs.
Recipe Notes

I like plenty of the buttery broth, but Stew prefers only a small amount. Add as much or as little as you like.

    I read the instructions a few times and I just want to be sure I understand them. So you cook the noodles in the broth but don’t drain right?
    Thanks

      Hi Amy,

      Yes you cook the pasta in the chicken broth and don’t drain. I tend to serve the pasta with a slotted spoon and then pour the buttery broth into the bowls afterwards. That way you can control the amount of broth you get.

      Hope that helps 😀

    Oh my goodness do I LOVE this simple soup! I have made it several times in the past month trying it with different brands of chicken broth and parmesan. The broth is key for sure! I happily look foward to it when I’m going to have it that night. Thanks for sharing!

      Oh Lee ann, thank you so much 😀 I love hearing from people who enjoy my recipes.

      And I agree the broth is the key to this dish, a good chicken broth takes this to sublime.

      I am so happy to have shared a recipe you love 😀

    Wondering – do you have the nutritional values for this recipe?

    1. Reply

      Hi Laurie,

      I have plugged the ingredients into an online calculator and it came up with this.
      Based on the recipe serving 4 people:
      Calories 398.6
      Total Fat 29.1 g

      It seems to depend very heavily on the chicken broth used. Homemade stock has more fat and calories in it than store bought.

      I am looking into a new recipe card that will display nutritional information. So hope to have that on my site soon 🙂

    A cure for a hangover? That’s right up my alley. I think I should make this a regular Monday morning breakfast. Ha! this really looks comforting and the fact that it’s not healthy is such a bonus.

      Hehe, I think it should be my weekly Sunday morning brekkie 😉

    What an absolutely gorgeous and simple dish. I am surely making it for lunch this week since it’s supposed to be yucky and rainy all week.

    Many would say that the key to killing a hangover is to let yourself down slowly… Hair of the dog and all that 😉 Love the sound of this though hangover or not, that buttery stock soup sounds awesome!

      I did also go for a sweet cider. I thought maybe the sugar and alcohol would help.
      I suppose in the name of disclosure I should add that to the post 😉

  7. This sounds like perfect comfort food. Butter makes me happy too. 😉

    That’s nice and simple. I was telling myself this evening that I make cooking (okay, lots of stuff) so complicated that I exhaust myself before I even begin.

    That said, easy to toss in some leftover beans, chicken, greens…
