Add sugar and saffron to milk and bring just to under a boil and cool. Whisk eggs together and gradually blend in milk; season with a pinch of salt and lots of fresh pepper. Pour over pasta and currants. Place gratin dish in a large baking pan and pour boiling or very hot water into the pan to reach half way up the side of the gratin dish. Bake for 1 hour or until set.
