- In a saucepan combine the butter and flour and cook over low heat stirring constantly until it forms a cream. Bring the previously heated milk to a boil, then add the cheddar, Parmesan, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
- Mix until a thick and smooth cream resembling béchamel is formed.
- Cook and drain the short pasta until it is al dente. Put it in a mixing bowl, then add the cream cheese and mix well.
- Grease a baking dish and sprinkle it with breadcrumbs. Pour in your macaroni and cheese and top with grated Parmesan cheese. Bake at 200° for 20 minutes, or until the surface is golden.
- You can substitute other cheeses for the cheddar, such as mental and fontina, or mix them all together the important thing is that they are soft cheeses with a strong flavor. You can also use pecorino instead of grated Parmesan.
