Ingredients


1/2 tsp Black pepper (or to taste)
1 tbsp Butter, unsalted
1 tsp Mustard powder
1/2 tsp Kosher salt (or to taste)
1/2 cup Milk, fat-free (skimmed)
2/3 cup, shredded Mozzarella cheese, partially skimmed
3 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup Parsley, fresh (chopped)
4 cup Pasta, Fusilli, dry (12 ounces)
1 medium shallot(s) Shallots (finely chopped)
1/3 cup Sour cream, light
2/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese, low fat
2 tbsp All-purpose white flour

Instructions


Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs. Reserve 3/4 cup of the cooking water, then drain the pasta.

Add the butter to the empty pot and melt over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring, until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add the flour and mustard powder and cook, stirring, until the flour begins to toast, about 1 minute. Whisk in the milk and the reserved cooking water; cook, whisking, until thick, about 2 minutes.

Reduce the heat to medium. Whisk in the sour cream, mozzarella, Swiss cheese and 1 tablespoon parmesan; continue whisking until melted, about 1 minute. Stir in the pasta, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; transfer to a 2-quart baking dish. Preheat the broiler.

Combine the remaining 2 tablespoons parmesan, the herbs, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the pasta. Broil until golden and bubbly, about 2 minutes.
