Cook macaroni according to package instruction. Drain well and return to pot. Stir in olive oil to prevent sticking. Set aside. Combine soy milk with arrowroot in a medium saucepan, stirring until arrowroot is dissolved. Cook over medium low heat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the cheeses. This will melt into the soy milk mixture and will appear sticky. Transfer cheese sauce to pot with macaroni and stir well. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle paprika over the top and serve.
