Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil and whisk constantly. Reduce heat and bring to a simmer for 2 minutes. Add provolone and cheddar cheese, salt and pepper. Whisk until cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and season to taste with salt and pepper if desired. Mix in cheese sauce with macaroni. Mix in cut chicken nuggets. Put mixture into a 13×9 inch glass baking dish. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake the mixture until heated through, about 30 minutes.
