Step 4: In the bottom of the prepared baking dish, place 1/3 of the macaroni in an even layer. Evenly add 1/3 of the cheese on top. Do the same with the rest of the macaroni and cheese mixture. Evenly pour the milk mixture on top, then sprinkle with paprika.

Step 5: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 35 to 45 minutes until the top has lightly browned. Remove from the oven and allow the mac and cheese to sit for at least 10 to 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
