      Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta, salt the water, and cook the pasta to al dente.

    • 2

      While the pasta water comes to a boil, place a medium pot over medium-low heat with EVOO and the butter. Add the onions and garlic to the pan and cook until very soft, about 10 minutes.

    • 3

      Heat the broiler and position the rack in the middle of the oven.

      Turn up the heat under the pot to medium-high and sprinkle the flour into the pot. Cook for about 1 minute, then whisk in the wine and cook for another minute to burn off the alcohol. Whisk the milk into the pan and bring up to a bubble. Add the nutmeg, artichokes, spinach, and salt and pepper to the sauce and simmer until thickened and the vegetables are warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes more. Add 1 cup of each of the cheeses to the sauce and stir until melted.

    • 5

      Toss the prepared sauce with the cooked pasta and transfer to a casserole dish. Sprinkle the remaining Fontina and Parmigiano over the top and brown under the broiler for about 3 minutes.
