    KK - Chef #426156's Note:

    My stepfather, Dan Kroesen, loved mac and cheese, especially at Thanksgiving. He called this recipe "el primo" and I named it after him. Sometimes I use 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper instead of the paprika for a little added zip.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook the pasta until 'al dente' on the package directions. Meanwhile, melt the butter, then add the flour and cook until the mixture loosens, like a regular roux. Add the dry mustard, salt and paprika. Add the milk and simmer about 10 minutes, until thickened.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    3. 3
      Toss the cheeses together.
    4. 4
      Place 1/2 of the pasta in a large casserole (at least a 9x13 pan, or slightly larger), sprinkle with 1/2 of the cheeses, then with 1/2 of the cream sauce.
    5. 5
      Then layer the rest of the pasta, the rest of the cream sauce and top with the rest of the cheeses.
    6. 6
      Bake in the bottom third of the oven for approximately 1 hour, or until the casserole is nice and bubbly with browning around the edges.
    7. 7
      Let rest 5-10 minutes before serving.

      Made this partly for the house-bound neighbors I cook for quite a bit, & they absolutely love mac & cheese, so, during PAC, I make it for them a lot! This time I took your time & used a bit of cayenne pepper & they enjoyed that very much, as did the 2 of us, since I ALWAYS keep a bit back just for us! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Very easy to prepare, & since we always enjoy both honeydew & cantelope
