Let's Make It
Heat dressing in large saucepan on medium heat. Add sausage; cook 8 to 10 min. or until done, stirring occasionally to break into small pieces. Drain.
Add broth, stir-fry vegetables, beans and tomatoes; bring to boil. Stir in macaroni; simmer on medium heat 8 to 10 min. or until macaroni is tender, stirring occasionally.
Top with cheese.
Substitute ground beef for the Italian sausage.
Stir in 1/4 cup shredded fresh basil leaves along with the broth, vegetables, beans and tomatoes. Or if you prefer a spicier flavor, stir in 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper instead.
Serve with RITZ Crackers.
