Preparation

Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish or use individual gratin dishes( lightly greased). Cook the pasta and peas a few minute shy of el dente according to package directions. Drain well in a colander
2.While the pasta is in the colander, return pot to medium heat. Melt the butter in the pan, whisk in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until light golden about 1-2 minutes. Slowly whisk in milk in small additions until completely added and no lumps of flour remain. Stir in salt, sherry, nutmeg and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until sauce bubbles and thickens 5 minutes. Once bubbling, cook for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly, scraping bottom of the pan tp prevent burning.
