Serves 6
8 oz. Hy-Vee farfalle bowtie pasta
1 ¾ c. Hy-Vee skim milk
4 tbsp. Hy-Vee butter
4 tbsp. Hy-Vee flour
3 oz. German Bruder Basil Cheese, chopped pea-size (about 1/2 cup)
2 ½ oz. Asiago cheese, shredded
5 oz. Grand Cru Gruyere cheese, shredded
1 tsp. Hy-Vee ground black pepper
1 tsp. Hy-Vee salt
2 pinch(es) nutmeg
1 c. sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
5 tsp. Hy-Vee breadcrumbs

  2. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat milk in microwave on HIGH for 1-1/2 minutes; set aside.
