  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, place cream in a small saucepan, over medium-low heat. Stir in the smoked salmon, and season with nutmeg and black pepper if desired. Stir frequently until thickened.
  3. Place drained pasta into a large serving bowl. Pour the cream sauce over the pasta, and add the caviar. Toss gently until some of the caviar has broken and colors the pasta slightly. Serve immediately with a sprinkling of parsley.

The taste was good. I was afraid it would be too salty from the salmon and caviar, but it was not. I had to add some salt. I made it for a special occasion - was not disappointed - just expected something more.

The salt note is important. I made this two times. The second time I just used fresh salmon and seasoned to taste. Relly good recipe!!!!

Fresh, flavorful and easy; that's what makes this dish so successful. We smoked our own salmon and freshly grated nutmeg was a nice touch. I will make again.
