7 ounces elbow macaroni
6 tablespoons butter, divided
3 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk
8 ounces cream cheese, cubed
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
Cook macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, melt 4 tablespoons butter in a large saucepan. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk and bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Reduce heat; add cheeses, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth.
Drain the macaroni; add to cheese sauce and stir to coat. Transfer mixture to a greased shallow 3-quart baking dish. Melt the remaining butter; toss with bread crumbs. Sprinkle over macaroni. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden.
