Caviar Carbonara Pasta Recipe | D’Artagnan


  • 2 pastured egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons crème fraîche
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano
  • Freshly ground black pepper, if desired
  • 4 ounces egg tagliatelle
  • 2 dollops Farm-Raised Ossetra Caviar Malossol


  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolks, crème fraîche, cheese, and pepper, if using. Set aside.
  2. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil; add pasta and cook until al dente. Drain, reserving a bit of pasta water.
  3. Whisk about a teaspoon of pasta water into egg and cheese mixture. Repeat. Add hot pasta and turn to coat evenly, adding another spoon or so of pasta water, if needed.
  4. Split pasta evenly between small, warmed bowls. Top each with a generous dollop of caviar and serve immediately.
