Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. In large pot filled with water add 3 pinches of salt and the macaroni and place over high heat. Bring to a boil and let cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain. Set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Sprinkle flour over butter and cook 2 to 3 minutes on medium heat, whisking until a roux or paste forms. Add cold milk and whisk vigorously until dissolved. Cook sauce on medium-low heat until thick and bubbly. Add heavy cream, all cheeses, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1 tablespoon pepper. Cook until cheeses are fully melted, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add cooked macaroni to cheese mixture and mix thoroughly. Place macaroni mixture in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish and top with bread crumbs. Place in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Top with fresh parsley and serve.
  5. For variations, add cooked lobster meat, truffle oil, bacon and/or garden fresh vegetables.
