- Variation. To serve with chicken, add a pinch of saffron or 2-3 anatto seeds when frying the pasta to add a delicate orangish yellow color.

We love this recipe! I use chicken broth in place of the water, so will have to try your version. Thank you for the reminder, I haven't made this in a while.sheba in Lac La Biche loved it
