How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the fusilli over high heat until al dente. Drain the pasta and return it to the pot.

Step 2    

In a large skillet, cook the shallot and mushrooms in the olive oil over moderately high heat, stirring, until softened, 5 minutes. Add the wine and boil over high heat for 1 minute. Add the cream, season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Stir in the shrimp and chives and simmer over moderately high heat until the shrimp are just white throughout, about 1 minute.

Step 3    

Add the shrimp and sauce to the fusilli and toss. Season lightly with salt and pepper; transfer to bowls. Coarsely shred the caviar over the pasta on a frozen box grater (this will prevent the caviar from sticking). Garnish with the cheese and serve.
