Lots of Hungarian grandmothers make goulash, I'm sure, but this isn't the recipe they use!! This bears no relation to real Hungarian goulash! (tho it is a good quick meal!)

Goulash is one of those recipes I never appreciated as a kid, but I sure love it now. Do you have dishes like that too? I know my mom would say she is making goulash and me and my sister would sigh. Now, I sigh, but its because I am happy about having the goulash. It's funny how time changes your perspective on things.

Goulash has long been one of my absolute comfort dishes and Grandmas Goulash is a particularly good version of this much loved family favorite. And with grated cheese on top and finished off with a dollop of sour cream it was quite delicious! The whole family tucked in with much relish and there was not even a tiny bit left after. A definite hit!

This is my go to meal when I have to feed the whole family in a hurry and I have to depend on what I have in the freezer and my pantry. You can add seasonings and vary the pasta sauce you use to get the taste you want. I have even used tomato sauce with chili seasonings when I didn't have any pasta sauce. Kids love it and it is hearty.

I made this recipe and it was too soupy. After cooling off and letting the noodles absorb the juice it was the right consistency. The sauce tasted too much like spaghetti sauce. I think I prefer the way I make mine. If I make this again it would have to be cut in half, because it was all the way to the brim in my dutch oven pot.

My mouth is watering. I can't wait to make this for my family. We love goulash. I make it at least once a month. I had never thought of using pasta sauce. My family loved mine, but I am sure they will love this one more since it has more seasonings than mine.

This is so easy to make and tastes better than the boxed helper meals. You can choose your own pasta-I like spirals because there's more surface area for sauce to cling to. You can also add some red pepper flakes if you like a little heat or use mild or spicy bulk breakfast sausage. I always add the cheese and sour cream with a little diced green onion on top of the sour cream. Looks great on the plate and adds another layer of flavor!
