If you thought regular fettucine Alfredo was good, wait till you try this!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, cook the shrimp, the shallot and garlic in the butter over moderate heat, stirring, for 3-4 minutes, or until shrimp are just firm to touch and opaque.
  2. Reduce heat to moderately-low and stir in the fettucine.
  3. In a bowl, beat together the yolks, half and half and the Parmesan.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the shrimp mixture and cook until the sauce is thickened, tossing all the while so the egg doesn’t curdle, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Do not let sauce boil.
  6. Stir in parsley and salt and pepper to taste.

Admittedly I made a few changes. I couldn't find a shallot so I used regular onion, skipped the egg yolks and added 1/4 cup more cheese then added 2-3 tablespoons cornstarch to thicken. It was absolutely delicious!! Thanks for sharing your great recipe.

THis is absolutely wonderful!!!! I used linguine instead of fetticine as that is what I had on hand. I will make this again :-)
