Recipe for Capellini with Smoked Salmon and Caviar

Capellini with Smoked Salmon and Caviar is a great pasta dish to serve to guests. Here’s a light New York-style pasta dish. Capellini is the thinnest of the spaghetti-type noodle. Fresh capellini is very light and tender but difficult to find; dried capellini noodles may be used and are available in many supermarkets.

I always like to serve pasta with a salad.

In small saucepan, combine cream and shallots; bring to boil and boil until cream is reduced by almost half and is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in paprika and pepper. Remove from heat, cover and keep warm.

In large pot of boiling water, cook capellini until al dente (tender but firm) or according to the package directions (5 to 10 minutes for dried, 1 to 3 minutes for fresh), being careful not to overcook; drain and rinse under cold running water for about 10 seconds.

Arrange hot noodles on 4 warm individual salad plates. Stir smoked salmon into cream mixture until well mixed; spoon over noodles. Garnish with caviar and parsley, if using. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
