Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9- by 13-inch baking dish.
In a large pot of salted water, cook the elbow macaroni until it is 4 minutes from being cooked through. Drain and add in the butter and cheese, and season with salt and pepper. Toss until the butter is melted and all are combined. Place in the prepared baking dish.
In a large bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. Pour the mixture over the pasta and stir well. Sprinkle with the paprika.
Bake, uncovered, until the top is brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Serve immediately.
