- Serves: 8; 1 cup per serving
1/4 cup fat-free milk and 1 1/4 cups fat-free milk, divided use
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese and
1 1/2 tablespoons shredded or grated Parmesan cheese, divided use
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon pepper (white preferred)
2 tablespoons finely snipped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 medium lemon, cut into 4 wedges (optional)
Prepare the pasta using the package directions, omitting the salt. Drain well in a colander. Cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup milk and the flour until smooth. Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Pour the mixture into the saucepan.
Whisk in the remaining 1 1/4 cups milk. Bring to a boil. Cook for 15 minutes, or until thickened, stirring constantly with a flat spatula to keep the sauce from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Stir in 1/4 cup Parmesan and the lemon juice and pepper.
Transfer the pasta to a platter. Pour the sauce over the pasta. Sprinkle with the parsley, salt, and remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons Parmesan. Garnish with the lemon wedges.
