How to make
Make the sauce:
In a large saucepan, on medium-high heat, melt butter. Add flour and cook, whisking constantly for a minute, to get rid of any lumps.
Add water, milk, salt, garlic powder, crushed red pepper, black pepper, and nutmeg. Whisk everything together and cook until the mixture comes to a boil.
Pour the mixture over the pasta and cheese. Cover the pan with aluminum foil. Bake for 30 minutes, until pasta is almost tender.
Prepare the topping:
In the meantime, use a small skillet to melt the 2 tablespoons of butter. Stir in the bread crumbs and the dried parsley.
Remove the pan from the oven, sprinkle bread crumb mixture over the top and add the rest of the shredded cheese.
