Stovetop, Oven, Baking dish, Pot (large)
Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a pot of salted boiling water, cook the macaroni according to the package instructions, but drain about 2 min early before it's fully cooked!
In a small bowl, combine breadcrumbs, 1/2 the parmesan cheese, salt & pepper.
Melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Slowly whisk in flour until well-combined.
Working quickly & carefully, whisk in the milk until smooth. Season with salt & pepper, then whisk again. Reduce the heat to a low simmer & allow the sauce to thicken for 2 min.
Whisk in shredded cheddar, mozzarella & the remaining parmesan cheese. The mixture should be thick & smooth.
Add the drained macaroni to the cheese sauce & stir to combine.
Transfer the mac & cheese to a baking dish in an even layer. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs on top. Bake in the oven at 425°F for 8-10 min, or until the top is golden brown.
Serve immediately & enjoy!
