PASTA & EGG DROP SOUP


Chinese egg drop soup is one of my favourites. I keep making variations to this by adding different ingredients, greens or vegetables to it. This time I have tried it out with some pasta. It was delicious.

Ingredients:
Pasta ... handful ( use small variety or boil and cut any pasta )
Chicken stock .. 2 - 3 cups
Egg .....................    1
Corn starch ........ 2 tsps
Salt ...................... to taste
Black pepper ...... freshly crushed

Method:
1. Boil the pasta adding a little oil and salt. Drain and set aside. Cut into smaller pieces.
2. In a pan pour the chicken stock and bring it to a boil.
3. Add corn starch mixed in water. Simmer it for a minute or two.
4. Break the egg and start pouring like a stream into the boiling soup and stir it.
5. Add the pasta and season with salt and freshly crushed pepper.

If you don't have chicken stock you can use maggi chicken cube for flavour.
