Ingredients
  

  • 16 ounces linguine
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1-2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese divided
  • 1 teaspoon herbs de Provence
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lightly grease a large baking dish.
  • Cook the linguine according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, in a large saute pan, melt the butter. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the flour until smooth.
  • Gradually whisk in the chicken broth and milk, stirring until smooth. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes, or until sauce has thickened. Reduce heat and add half of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Season with herbs de Provence, nutmeg, salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Combine the sauce with the cooked linguine and toss to coat well. Transfer the pasta to the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cheeses.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with fresh parsley for garnish.
