Best cheeses to use for mac and cheese?

So I'm making mac and cheese for the first time from scratch tonight. It's a smaller recipe calling for 1 1/2 cups of cheese. I've got Monteray Jack and a 2year Aged white cheddar. I want something rich. Should I do 1 cup cheddar, 1/2 cup monteray or reverse it. What works best? Thanks! show more So I'm making mac and cheese for the first time from scratch tonight.
