- Fry the pepperoni over medium heat until the fat is rendered and they are starting to crisp. Chuck in the garlic, fry for 15 seconds or so, then add the paprika, oregano, tomato puree and butter. Cook for a brief moment to get rid of the raw flavour, then add the flour. Cook, stirring frequently. Add the milk in stages, stirring to avoid lumps. Season with 1/2 tsp salt.
- Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add pasta, stir through and remove from heat. Off the heat, add the mozzarella, gruyere and cheddar. Stir to combine. Pour this into a baking dish.
- In a large bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, butter, parmesan and parsley. Pour this all over the top of the pasta.
- Bake for 40 minutes at 180°C, or until bubbly and golden.
- Dig in.
