Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the pasta.

While the pasta is cooking, in a separate pot, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour, bread crumbs and brown sugar, keeping it moving for about 5 minutes. Make sure it’s free of lumps. Stir in the milk, onion, and paprika.

Add in the egg. Stir in ¾ of the cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the macaroni into the mix and pour into a 2-quart casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
