  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat; whisk flour into the melted butter until dissolved, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and white pepper. Pour milk into the flour mixture; cook and stir until sauce is smooth and thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.

  3. Remove sauce from heat and stir in egg yolks and nutmeg until well incorporated. Pour sauce over pasta; toss to coat.
  4. Cook and stir sausage in a skillet over medium heat until browned and cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir sausage into pasta; season with salt and white pepper.

way too much pasta to meat... flavorless!!

This is a great and easy recipe. The first time I made it I followed the directions exactly and it came out great. I have made this a few times and tried little differences to the sauce and foun...

Very thick and creamy, but not much flavor. I would not add the nutmeg again. I would, however, add garlic and onion, and more sausage.

The sauce is very thick and heavy!

Quick and easy recipe excellent for a cold winter dinner
