Cook the macaroni in boiling salted water according to the packet instructions.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan. Whisk in the flour over a low heat and cook for 2 minutes, whisking constantly, until the mixture begins to bubble and separate.

Take the pan off the heat and whisk in the milk, a little at a time, whisking well between each addition, until it has all been added and the sauce is smooth. Return to the heat and cook, stirring until the sauce thickens. Reduced the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Be sure to whisk right into the edges of the saucepan, as this is where the sauce can burn if left undisturbed. Add 100g (3 1/2oz) of the Cheddar cheese and stir until it has melted.

Preheat the grill on its highest setting. Pour the sauce over the macaroni, season with pepper, and stir well to coat. Sprinkle over the remaining Cheddar cheese and the Parmesan. Place on baking tray and grill for 5 minutes, or until bubbling. Serve with steamed broccoli.
