Spaghetti with Caviar and Cream

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

This is an extremely rich and wonderful first course, and definitely something to splurge on on a special occasion. I would probably follow with a piece of beef or pork tenderloin, simply done, and a large green salad. Fruit Salad for dessert.

Omg, this pasta is so creamy and delicious. The shallots add a wonderful sweetness to the cream, and the caviar just makes it look elegant. This is very rich, but so worth it. Definitely a keeper for me, thanks! :)
