This soup gets its golden colour from the saffron threads, which are used throughout Italy to provide a slight lemony flavour and gorgeous orange hue.


6 cups (1.5 L) vegetable or chicken stock
1 tsp (5 mL) saffron threads
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
4 oz (125 g) angel hair pasta
2 eggs
1/2 cup (125 mL) whipping cream
2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped fresh Italian parsley

In saucepan bring vegetable stock and saffron threads to boil.
Reduce heat to simmer and add butter. Stir until melted.
Meanwhile, break pasta into about 1-inch (5 cm) pieces and add to stock.
Cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes or until pasta is al dente.
In small bowl, whisk together eggs, cream and parsley.
Gently pour mixture into stock, stirring constantly and cook for about 4 minutes or until set and thickened.

Tip: Have some freshly grated Parmesan to sprinkle over top before serving.
Tip: Look for other thin soup pasta noodles like Fedelini Tagliati or Filimi all’uovo.
