Step 1

Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Reduce heat; add cheeses, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir until cheeses are melted and sauce is smooth. Add macaroni and stir to coat.

Transfer to a lightly greased 3-quart casserole dish.

In a separate saucepan, melt remaining butter and toss with bread crumbs and parsley; sprinkle over macaroni.
