Here is a rich and luxurious recipe that is perfect for your time-starved holiday schedule. It is made with pappardelle, the widest and most flamboyant of the traditional egg noodle pastas. (The name comes from the Italian word pappare, which means “to gobble up.”) The secret ingredient is saffron, which, while a bit expensive, gives seafood an indescribably wonderful flavor. Serve this dish family style on a large decorative platter as a culinary centerpiece for your New Year’s Dinner.
The simple addition of orange zest adds a delightful dimension to this French classic, with subtle, tangy citrus notes enhancing the creamy-sweet custard. Home cooks who don’t have a chef’s blowtorch can easily use their broiler to caramelize the sugar topping. But remember to leave the oven door slightly open and keep watch. A golden sugar crust can quickly turn black if left too long under the flame.
