Cheese Linguine

My kids love anything that includes pasta and cheese, and we all liked this recipe. I like that it doesn't have a ton of butter in this recipe so it's a little more healthy than the alfredo sauce I love.

Cheese Linguine (I doubled this)
by Chelsey W.

1 pkg (7 oz) linguine
2 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 c milk
3/4 c shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 c shredded parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp lemon juice
Cook linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a skillet over low heat melt butter. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper until smooth. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil and stir for two minutes until thickened. Remove from heat. In a small bowl combine cheeses and lemon juice. Add cheese to sauce and stir until cheese melts. Add drained linguine to cheese sauce and toss to coat. Serve with sprinkled parmesan on top.
