Set the shrimp aside.

In the same skillet, heat remaining 2oz of butter, then sprinkle in 1/2 cup of flour. Stir or wisk until mixed.

Drizzle in 1 cup of heavy cream into sauce and bring to a low boil. Continue folding. (If mixture gets too thick, add a drop of water. Watch heat and turn down if necessary so as not to burn.

Add in 1 tbsp of Parmigiano Reggiano, 1 cup of chopped broccoli florets, 1/2 cup of chopped red onions and the cooked shrimp. Stir all.

Immediately add in 1 cup of pasta water. Stir and fold.

Add in the cooked Fettuccine pasta and stir until all are mixed to a nice consistency and temperature.
