This is very good. The whole family requested it again.

Linguine in Saffron-Lemon Sauce with vodka.

1 lb. linguine
1/2 c. whipping cream
1/4 c. vodlka or chicken broth
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut up
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel
1/4 tsp. saffron threads, crushed
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.
3. As soon as linguine is drained, add to skillet with prosciutto; increase heat to med-high. Bring to a boil, gently stirring to combine. Remove from heat. Add lemon juice; toss.

Hope you like this as much as we do.
