Shred Cheddar and set aside. Cook noodles to al dente; drain and return to pot. Melt butter in saucepan; whisk in flour, cornstarch, and seasonings, then half and half. Heat until lightly bubbling, then stir in Cheddar until melted. Add sauce to noodles, stir well and pour into 13 x 9 x 2 dish sprayed with cooking spray. Stir Parmesan and crumbs together and distribute evenly over top of macaroni; sprinkle with paprika. Cover with aluminum foil and bake 20 minutes at 350; uncover and bake 10 more minutes.
