    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a saucepan melt 4 tablespoons butter & whisk in the flour.
    2. 2
      When flour is completely incorporated, gradually pour in the milk, whisking constantly. Keep whisking until milk comes to a boil, then simmer for 2-3 minutes & remove it from the heat.
    3. 3
      Stir in nutmeg, salt & pepper to taste, & add 1/3 of the cheese.
    4. 4
      Let this sauce cool until just warm, then stir in the beaten egg yolks & set aside.
    5. 5
      Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then add salt & pasta & cook for 2 MINUTES LESS than the package instructions indicate, so that the pasta is very al dente, as it will continue cooking in the oven.
    6. 6
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees F & butter the inside of a 13"x9" baking dish.
    7. 7
      When pasta is done, drain it & toss with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, then spread half of the pasta in the bottom of the baking dish. Pour half of the sauce over it & sprinkle half of the remaining cheese over that. Repeat layering with the remaining pasta, then the rest of the sauce & finally the cheese.
    8. 8
      Place the baking dish on the oven's middle rack & bake 20-30 minutes or until golden.
    9. 9
      Great when served warm or at room temperature with a fresh green salad.
