    Please don't omit the saffron. I know it's expensive, but it makes a difference.

      Definitely a recipe well worth the saffron. The recipe was reduced to 2 servings and instead of cooking the shrimp in a separate pan, it was added the last few minutes to the pasta. The pasta really didn't need draining as the broth was absorbed by the end of the cooking time. Not having fresh parsley, I added fresh basil. As I said, definitely worth the saffron. *PAC September 2007*
