  4. Add the flour, salt,  eggs,black pepper and ⅛ teaspoon smoked paprika. Stir constantly over medium heat for about three minutes.
  5. Stir in the milk.
  6. Keeping on medium heat, whisk constantly for about 10 minutes, until the sauce thickens.
  7. Remove from heat, and stir in 2 cups of the cheddar cheese, stirring until melted.
  8. Pour the cheese sauce over the noodles and pour mozzarella cheese gently until all noodles are covered.
  9. Dust lightly with the smoked paprika.
  10. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until it starts getting a slightly dry and a tiny bit brown on top. Serve, topping individual servings with cooked.
