This delightful one-pot meal is full of flavor and color. Better still, it is made in the microwave or on the stove in just 15 minutes.

1-15-1/4 ounce can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup prepared chunky salsa
1 cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen
1-15-1/4 ounce can chicken broth
3/4 cup macaroni
1 cup red and green bell pepper, diced
1 cup sliced cabbage

Combine all ingredients in a large pan or microwave container. If making on the stove, bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook until macaroni is tender - about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally. If making in the microwave, cook on full power until macaroni is tender - about 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Optional: garnish with nonfat plain yogurt and chopped cilantro or dried oregano.
