In a medium saucepan, cook the macaroni according to package directions and drain.


In a saucepan, melt the butter or margarine over medium heat; stir in enough flour to make a roux.


Add milk to the roux slowly, stirring constantly; stir in the cheeses, and cook over low heat until the cheese is melted and the sauce is a little thick.


Put the macaroni in a large casserole dish, and pour the sauce over the macaroni; stir well.


Melt butter or margarine in a skillet over medium heat; add the breadcrumbs and brown; spread over the macaroni and cheese to cover.


Sprinkle with paprika; bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.

Notes

I got this Mac & Cheese recipe from the book 'Kitchen Komforts: Fabulous Comfort Food Recipes and Inspiring Short Stories to Nourish the Body and Soul', by LuLu Roman. It's very rich and creamy! I doubled the recipe; but I'm transcribing it as it appears in the cookbook.
