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.
