A warm dessert is one of my favorite things. A warm pudding? Definitely high on the list! Creamy and full of flavor, puddings can be a delicious comfort dessert. Fregola Sarda is a great nutty pasta that is the perfect component in a pudding. And who wouldn’t love pasta as dessert?!

Delicious Rating: This pudding is creamy with the perfect blend of vanilla bean to really kick it off. I almost ate the entire bowl when it was cooling down…so good! The pasta was soft but not mushy and it held in so much flavor. The syrup is a smooth concoction of saffron threads, vanilla bean, cinnamon, and lemon zest. It adds a lot more sweetness to the pudding and the hit of citrus, saffron, and vanilla give it a little extra something something. This is an easy recipe and the perfect dessert for any occasion, I will definitely cook it up again.

What a beautiful yummy pasta. Perfect for pudding.

Make sure to add some of the warm milk to the eggs instead of just adding the eggs to the warm mixture. They will scramble up immediately…not good.

This pudding is delicious warm or chilled.

The longer it sits the thicker it would get!
