Full Fat version of this recipe. Don't try to skimp on these ingredients. It just won't come out the same.

This is so rich that we don't have it often but this was worth it. I had a slight problem because it turned out somewhat drier than I would have liked so next time I will use less spaghetti noodles. Must admit that I was a bit nervous using white wine vinegar, but two tablespoons is about right. It took a lot more than five minutes preparation time because you are working at the stove the whole time. Thanks for sharing Bippie.
