My Healthier Chili Mac Casserole - OAMC

“Good comfort food, but my version is loaded with veggies! The heat depends on your choice of salsa. Makes one 11x17-inch casserole or two 8x8-inch casseroles. Defrost in the fridge overnight the day before cooking. (Or bake right away...you don't have to freeze it, of course.) Note: I made this once by mixing in a packet of cheese powder from a box of Annie's Natural Man n Cheese (nothing on top, obviously), which worked out well.”
