Gather your ingredients.
Heat a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Cook pasta until al dente, 10-12 minutes and drain.
Meanwhile, heat butter in a small saucepan. Add bread crumbs; cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Set aside. I prefer to use white bread crumbs in this recipe.
Combine macaroni, cream, and mustard in a large saucepan; cook over medium heat until hot, 3 minutes. Add cheese; stir to melt. Add salt and pepper.
Place macaroni in a serving bowls. Sprinkle with reserved bread crumbs and chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
