12 oz. (375g) Elbow macaroni (+2 Tbsp. salt for boiling water)
2 Tbsp. Butter
2 Tbsp. All-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups Milk
1/8 to 1/4 tsp. Ground mustard, nutmeg, salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups Grated old cheddar cheese
Salt to taste
1/2 cup Grated cheese (any of cheddar/mozzarella)
1/4 cup Finely grated Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta:
Cook 12 oz pasta in a pot of salted, boiling water for about 12 minutes or until tender (do not overcook; it will cook more in the oven).
Drain well and set aside.

Prepare cheese sauce:
1. Heat butter in large saucepan over medium heat until melted.
2. Add flour and whisk for 1 minute until mixture is just bubbling.
3. Gradually whisk in milk stirring rapidly to avoid lumps; stir until sauce boils and begins to thicken. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered.
4. Stir in mustard, nutmeg and salt & pepper to taste; stir occasionally for 5 minutes or until thickened; remove from heat.
5. Stir in 1 cup cheddar cheese until melted and combined.
6. Fold pasta into sauce and stir until combined; add salt to taste.

Layer Macaroni & Cheese:
1. Pour 1/2 of the pasta mixture into a 2L glass or ceramic casserole.
2. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheddar and 1/4 cup mozzarella on the bottom layer.
3. Pour remaining pasta mixture and spread as a top layer.
4. Sprinkle remaining cheddar and mozzarella on the top layer.
5. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Parmesan and 1/4 cup bread crumbs on the top layer.

Bake in preheated oven at 350F (180C) for 30 minutes.
