Growing up, when I was sick, my mom would make me pastina with butter. I always thought it was just a thing my mom and my grandma did, but I’ve heard from other Italian kids that it is definitely an Italian thing. I don’t know if it actually does do anything to settle my stomach, but the placebo effect is good enough for me.
