It’s not often that my husband’s gut reaction after his first bite of one of my concoctions is “I LOVE this kale!”
This healthy mac-n-cheese recipe is loaded with veggies and superfoods! With hidden cauliflower to make it extra creamy, and cheesy delicious kale that even non-veggie-lovers will be happy to eat. You can’t go wrong here.
AND it’s so simple to make! You need to try this healthy and simple mac n cheese for yourself!
12 oz. organic brown rice pasta spirals (or any pasta of your choice)
2 cups steamed cauliflower florets
2 handfuls kale (de-stemmed and chopped)
