Macaroni-Bean Skillet

New recipe last night. It was very good. I think Chad liked it, but won’t admit it to his A-List, because there isn’t any meat in it! It was super fast, super easy, and really tasty! Plus it is one that ingredients would be easy to always have on hand! I think you could make it without the cheese if your stomach so desired, but I can’t imagine that at all!
