  • 16 ounces elbow macaroni
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded gouda cheese
  • 3 teaspoons of butter
  • 2 cups of buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350. Cook pasta according to directions on the package and drain. Spray a 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray. Mix macaroni noodles, 1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese, 1 cup of gouda cheese, butter and seasonings together in a bowl.
  • Pour into baking dish. Pour buttermilk over top of macaroni and stir. Top with remaining cheese. Cover and bake for 20 minutes. Then uncover and bake another 10 minutes.


You probably wont be able to find shredded gouda, you will have to shred it yourself.
