    Melt the butter over a medium heat in a saucepan slightly larger than that used for the macaroni. Add the flour and stir to form a roux, cooking for a few minutes.

    Meanwhile, preheat the grill to hot.
  • STEP 5
    Remove the sauce from the hob, add 175g/6oz of the cheese and stir until the cheese is well combined and melted.
  • STEP 6
    Add the macaroni to the sauce and mix well. Transfer to a deep suitably-sized ovenproof dish.
  • STEP 7
    Sprinkle over the remaining cheddar and the parmesan and place the dish under the hot grill. Cook until the cheese is browned and bubbling. Serve straightaway.
