There's no cream in this take on alfredo, but the end result is just as rich and silky as its heavier versions—and arguably makes a better final dish since ingredients like cream tend to mask delicate flavors like seafood. So how did we manage to create a creamy (yet cream-less) alfredo? By slowly whisking in butter, cheese, and egg yolk into starchy pasta water, the mixture emulsifies into a sauce that—once tossed with the shrimp, fettuccine, and peas—is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser.
