Sardinian saffron is one of the most precious spices in the world and that is why it is very common in Sardinia to make gnocchetti sardi or malloreddus with this type of dough. You can use this dough to make any type of pasta, in the same way that you would do with a normal semolina dough, even when making ravioli.
The Saffron will give an intense yellow colour to the dough and a kind of light sweet aroma into it.
