- 12 ounces multigrain or whole-wheat elbow macaroni (3 1/2 cups)
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
- Kosher salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (optional)
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- 3 1/2 cups grated Cheddar (12 ounces)
- Cook the macaroni according to the package directions.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the bread crumbs and cook, stirring, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and the parsley (if using). Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
Wipe out the saucepan and melt the remaining tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Whisk in the milk and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has slightly thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the Cheddar and 1 1/2 teaspoon salt and whisk until the cheese melts. Stir in the macaroni.
Divide among bowls and sprinkle with the bread crumbs.
