Preheat oven to 400ºF.
Prepare a 13" x 9" pan by spraying with olive oil, you can also use a round casserole dish, you just won't get as much crunchy topping!
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.
Add pasta and cook until slightly under-cooked, very al dente (the pasta will cook more in the casserole).
Rinse pasta and set aside.
In the top of a double boiler, melt the butter.
Add the flour and whisk until a roux forms (approximately 6 minutes over low heat).
Slowly add the milk, continuing to stir until combined.
Add the cheddar cheese and stir until the cheese is melted.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pour the cheese mixture over the noodles and stir to combine.
Pour mixture into the prepared pan.
Mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter and bread crumbs until crumbly.
Sprinkle over the top of the casserole dish.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until top is browned and mixture is bubbling.
Remove from oven and cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
