While the pasta cooks, place a large ovenproof skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat and melt the butter.

After the butter melts, whisk in the flour and cook, stirring, for one to two minutes, or until the mixture starts to brown slightly.

This will take away the flour's raw flavour. Add the pepper and salt and whisk. To get rid of lumps, whisk in the milk.

Either add it all at once or add it in small amounts while whisking it vigorously until it is completely smooth.
