  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 14.5 ounces canned diced tomatoes
  • 8 ounces elbow macaroni
  • 6 ounces (1-1/2 cups) shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced


  • Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat until hot.
  • Add the beef and cook, breaking into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the garlic powder and smoked paprika and cook for 30 seconds or so.
