Creamy Fregola Sarda Pudding w/ Saffron Vanilla Bean Syrup

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.
