Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces spaghetti
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, or more, as needed
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded fontina cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Directions:

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute.
  3. Gradually whisk in milk, heavy cream and Italian seasoning. Cook, whisking constantly, until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in cheeses until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk as needed; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Stir in pasta and gently toss to combine.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley and chives, if desired.
