Do - ahead: The shrimp can be shelled and deveined ahead. The mushrooms and scallions can be cut up ahead, and the beaten egg mixture can be prepared a short while before cooking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Shell and devein the shrimp. Slice the mushrooms and coarsely chop the scallions.
  3. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente, 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a serving bowl, beat the egg. Stir in the half-and-half, Parmesan cheese, parsley, anchovy paste, mustard and pepper. Set aside.
  5. In a large skillet, warm 2 tablespoons of the olive oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the mushrooms and garlic and stir-fry until the mushrooms are almost limp, about 5 minutes.
  6. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the shrimp, stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the scallions and stir-fry until shrimp turn pink about 2 minutes longer.
  7. Drain the pasta in a colander. Add the hot pasta to the beaten egg mixture and toss to cook the egg as well as coat the pasta. Add the shrimp-vegetable mixture and toss to distribute evenly. Serve hot.
