Add the pastina and chicken broth to a small pot or saucepan.
Bring to a gentle boil and stir often until the pasta is cooked to your liking and the chicken broth is almost all absorbed.
Turn the heat to low and add in the freshly grated parmesan cheese, salted butter, and fresh garlic. Stir for a few minutes until thoroughly combined and the cheese is melted.
Season with salt and black pepper to taste. You can also add extra chicken broth here for a saucier consistency.
Serve and enjoy! I like to add extra butter and parmesan cheese on top.
Serve & enjoy...
