  1. Put pasta water in a large pot. When pasta water is at a boil, add the pasta and then begin the white sauce.
  2.  Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a small saucepan over low heat; gradually stir flour (to make a roux) into melted butter until smooth and bubbly, 2 to 4 minutes. Donít quite let it brown.
  3. Add salt to butter and flour; stir to combine.
  4. Remove roux from heat and gradually stir in milk until smooth. Just slop milk in a little, stir and repeat. If you pour it in, your sauce will break. Once about half of it is in, you can pour in the rest.
  5. Return white sauce to stovetop; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer over low heat.
  6. Cook and stir figs and the Ĺ tablespoon of butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat until warm, about 5 minutes.
  7. Stir lemon zest and pepper into the white sauce. 
  8.  Put pasta into a serving bowl. Pour white sauce over the top (I used about 2/3 of it for a single serving) and give it a gentle stir. Serve figs atop the sauce.
