1 Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

3 In a medium saucepan, warm 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat until it is melted. Add the onion and garlic, and cook, stirring, until the onion is softened but not browned, about 3 minutes.
4 Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente, 7 to 9 minutes, or according to package directions.

Stir in the cream, milk, wine, dill, nutmeg, salt and pepper, and bring to a simmer over medium heat, Stirling until smooth. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened, about 4 minutes.
