Recipe by Eva99

From "365 Ways to Cook Pasta": The flavorings in this pudding are easily varied: add grated lemon or orange zest; use lemon extract instead of vanilla; add 2 tbsp raisins, dries currants, minced candied orange or minced dried apricots. This is a rich and creamy dessert or breakfast dish. Serve with chilled heavy cream over the top, if desired.
