DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the fettuccine according to package directions, omitting salt if desired.
  • Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking water.
  • Place the pasta in a serving bowl and keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium nonstick skillet.
  • Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture becomes straw-colored and fragrant, about 45 seconds, then remove from the heat and whisk in the milk.
  • Return the pan to the stove, raise the heat to medium-high, and continue cooking, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the reserved cooking water, the cheese, the lemon juice and nutmeg; stir until just smooth.
  • Pour over the hot pasta, toss gently to coat, and serve at once.
