Preheat the oven to 180˚C.
Place a large pan of salted water to boil.
Melt the butter in a medium-sized pan over a medium-low heat, add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute, stir in the flour and cook out for 2 minutes. Gradually incorporate the milk, whisking vigorously to avoid any lumps forming. Stir in the mustard powder and continue heating until you have a smooth creamy thickened sauce. Stir in the Gruyère and cheddar cheese, crab and season to taste, remove from the heat.
Cook the pasta as per packet instruction minus a couple of minutes, reserve 2 ladles full of the cooking water and drain.
Add the pasta to the cheese sauce along with some of the pasta water to loosen the sauce a little. The sauce doesn’t want to be too thick as it will thicken up again in the oven. Spoon the pasta into a suitable ovenproof dish.
Mix the breadcrumbs with the pecorino and lemon zest. Sprinkle over the breadcrumbs, drizzle with a little olive oil and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling. Serve with a green salad on the side.
