Watch: Cream-Free Shrimp Alfredo

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 an 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.
