Hello, my readers! Today I’m going to introduce you to a new pasta dish made with caviar.

Shop around, and you can find a good deal. Don’t assume caviar is only for rich people! I encourage you to try this delicious and elegant pasta entrée and run it as a special. I promise your customers will like it, especially since it’s a dish they’ve probably never had before! Mangia!
4 tbsp. olive oil
½ c. vodka
⅔ c. black caviar
1 lb. spaghetti
3 scallions, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, chopped
Salt and pepper
Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the scallions and garlic. Cook gently for about four to five minutes. Add the vodka and the cream and cook over low heat for another five to eight minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the caviar, along with some salt and pepper to taste.
Meanwhile, bring salted water to a boil, add spaghetti and cook until al dente. Once the pasta is ready, strain it and add it to the sauce mixture. Toss gently and serve.
