Penette ("ette" is the diminutive suffix and means "little") are perfect for cradling the incredibly rich and delicious sauce in this elegant dinner party dish. Cream cheese makes the sauce especially luxurious, and it pairs perfectly with the smoked salmon that's also included in the sauce as well as the caviar that's used as a garnish. If beluga caviar is beyond your budget, you can use salmon or trout roe instead.

This recipe sounded delicious, but I wasn't able to purchase the caviar. I used the salmon and it turned out wonderfully and I love the amazing health benefits of the fish.
