Cheese Tortellini in Saffron Cream Sauce
Matt got the saffron out, saving me from dragging out a stool the next day (I'm short, cupboards are tall), and like just about every other food, spice or seasoning he sees, Alex wanted to smell it.
After doing so, he declared we should have tortellini with some sort of saffron sauce.
I was so proud, I could have cried.
So, last night, that's exactly what we did.
With help from his dad, Alex prepared this gorgeous dish. Few ingredients, just cream, butter, saffron & grated Asiago cheese, and of course, pasta.
It was rich and filling, and delicious. Not bad for a five and a half year old, eh?
Of course, he's developing some fairly expensive tastes; Yale or Gruyere? Hope it doesn't come to that.
