Ina Garten's The Barefoot Contessa likens this dish to pasta alla vodka but "with so much more flavor." It hails from Nick and Toni's East Hampton restaurant and has been on the menu for 20 years. It is the perfect sauce to add to your winter repertoire.
There's not any cheese in it, it's just a butter, flour and milk sauce but the flavor kick comes from the little hint of nutmeg added at the end of cooking. It's so darn good and when served over the gnudi, it rivals mac and cheese.
