Boil the macaroni pasta for a little less than the stated time of the packed, drain and set aside.
In a large saucepan, place 2 tbsp. of melted butter, garlic and mustard and heat through.
Add in the flour and stir through, cooking for a few minutes to create a roux.
Gradually add the milk a little bit at a time, constantly stirring and then cook for 5 minutes so that it thickens.
Add in the cheddar and 50g of parmesan and mix until melted through.
Next, add the drained pasta into the cheese sauce and give it a could mix until the pasta is coated.
Pour the macaroni cheese into a shallow dish, sprinkle with the crunchy croutons and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
