How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 425 F.
- Bring a generous pot of salted water to a boil.
- While the water is heating up, melt butter in a heavy skillet over moderately low heat.
- Add flour and cook, whisking, until the mixture starts to turn light golden (about 3 minutes).
- While whisking, add milk and bring to a boil.
- Add mustard and spices. Cook until thickened, stirring occasionally (about 2 minutes).
- Add macaroni to the pot of boiling water and cook until al dente, about 6 minutes. Drain the macaroni and transfer to a 2 quart baking dish.
- Stir in sauce, grated cheese, 1/2 C Parmesan, and anything else that strikes your fancy. Smooth down the top.
- Mix the bread crumbs and remaining Parmesan together.
- Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the casserole.
- Dot with the butter.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the dish is bubbling and the topping turns golden brown.
