Butter 4 Tablespoon
Flour 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)

Shredded parmesan cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Shredded mozzarella cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Freshly ground black peppercorns 1/2 Teaspoon
Smoked paprika 1/2 Teaspoon


Getting Ready

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees (F).


For cooking macaroni

Cook macaroni in a medium to large pot that is half-full of boiling water, salted with 1 teaspoon of salt. 

It will take about 7 minutes for the macaroni to cook to a consistency that is al denti (chewy, but not mushy). 

For cheese sauce

In a medium-sized sauce pan, melt butter and add flour. 

Mix the flour thoroughly into the melted butter. 

Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and creamy. 

Add  milk and cook, stirring constantly, until white sauce is thickened and smooth. 

Add shredded Parmesan cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, salt,freshly ground black pepper, and smoked paprika. 

Now, place the cheese sauce over low heat, and cook and stir until the cheese is melted.


When the macaroni is done, pour it through a colander to remove all the water, and place cooked, drained macaroni in the saucepan containing the cheese sauce. 

Stir until macaroni and cheese sauce are completely mixed. 

Spray an 8-inch by 10-inch Pyrex dish with cooking spray, and add the prepared macaroni to the dish. Place the dish of macaroni in the pre-heated oven. 

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until done to your liking.
