2 1/2 cups elbow macaroni
2 1/2 Tbsp trans free margarine or butter
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/8 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1 qt lowfat milk, heated
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce (optional)
2 cups lowfat cheddar cheese, shredded
2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp fresh bread crumbs
1 Preheat oven to 350 F.
2 Cook macaroni in boiling water until firm-tender, about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
3 In a medium sauce pan, melt margarine or butter over low heat. Add flour, mustard, white pepper, and paprika to the melted margarine; cook the sauce for 2 minutes, stirring continuously. Do not brown.
4 Slowly add hot milk whisking frequently. Cook over low heat, whisking often until it is smooth and thick.
5 Add Worcestershire sauce, cheddar cheese, and parmesan cheese to the white sauce. Stir over low heat until cheese melts.
6 Remove sauce from heat and add macaroni. Mix well and place in a lightly greased 13"x9" baking pan. Cover with foil.
