This is a fun and healthy makeover of the ever popular macaroni and cheese.

1-1/2 cups macaroni
1 cup water
1-8 ounce can no-added-salt tomato sauce
2 cups chopped prewashed kale
1 cup thin sliced carrots
1 cup sliced bell pepper
1 Tbsp dried Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese shreds

Microwave: Place macaroni, water, tomato sauce, kale, carrots, bell pepper, Italian seasoning and garlic powder in a large covered microwave container. Cook on high until macaroni is done about 8-10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Top with reduced fat cheddar cheese and microwave 1 more minute.
Stovetop: Place macaroni, water, tomato sauce, kale, carrots, bell pepper, Italian seasoning and garlic powder in a large Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and then reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook until macaroni is done - about 8-10 minutes. Add more water if needed. When macaroni is done, spread cheese over the top, remove from the stove, cover with a lid and allow to sit until cheese melts, about 1 minute.
