Recipe Ingredients for Creamy Two-Cheese Linguine

8 ounces Whole Wheat Linguine
1 cup fat free milk
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, divided
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon flour
2 oz Asagio cheese, shaved; and divided
2 oz fat free cream cheese
1 Cherry tomatoes, sliced for garnish

Recipe Directions for Creamy Two-Cheese Linguine

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.

  2. While water is warming up for the pasta, heat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add flour to pan, and cook for 3-4 minutes or until it starts to slightly darken, whisking constantly. Add milk, 2 tablespoons basil, salt and pepper; cook for 4-5 minutes, constantly whisking, or until thickened. Add 1 1/2 oz of Asagio and all of the cream cheese to the milk mixture, stir until well combined. Turn burner to low, and keep warm until pasta is cooked.

  3. Once pasta is al dente, drain and place in a large bowl. Do not rinse pasta (the sauce will not stick as well if you do). Immediately pour sauce over pasta and toss to coat. Serve in four bowls and garnish each with remaining basil and Asagio. Add a sliced cherry tomato (or 5!), to the side for color and a special flavor burst. Serve immediately.
