Serves: 4Hands-on: 20 minutesTotal: 20 minutesDifficulty: Easy

Serves: 4


  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp. minced shallots
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3⁄4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. cracked peppercorns
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cups cooked fettuccine noodles


  • Melt the butter and sauté the shallots for 4 minutes. Add the heavy cream. Bring to a boil, and thicken, cooking for about 6 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese. In a separate, large serving bowl, beat the eggs. Whisk in a tablespoon of the cream sauce; stirring constantly, add the remainder of the sauce, a little at a time. (Be careful—if you put the hot sauce into the eggs too quickly, they will scramble.)
  • Toss with noodles and add remaining 1⁄4 cup parmesan, pepper, salt, and parsley to serve.
