1/4 tsp. salt
3 oz. sliced prosciutto, cut into strips
3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1. Cook linguine in large pot of boiling salted water 8-10 minutes or until al dente: drain
2. Meanwhile, place cream, vodka, butter, lemon peel, nutmeg, saffron and salt in a large skillet. Cook over low heat 5 to 8 minutes or until hot and flavors have blended.

Wow - this sounds fantastic, I can't wait to try it, thanks! (You know what, I've never bought saffron in my life - guess this will be a first :)
