This just didn't work for us. The nutmeg overpowered the dish. It taste too much like ricotta and nutmeg. Plus it was cold when eating. I did like the texture of the dish. Served it with a nice Parmesan cheese on top. Thanks for letting me try your recipe.

This is a simple, quick and easy main dish for those nights when you need something fast. I made the cheese sauce in the afternoon then just cooked some spaghetti later in the evening. This dish has wonderful flavor, and the zing of lemon zest combined with the nutmeg is wonderful. I topped it with a light splash of fresh squeezed lemon just before serving.
