This is exactly the kind of goulash recipe I have been looking for! It is so easy, and I have all the ingredients at home already! Bonus, there is nothing in this recipe I would leave out or alter in any way! I will have to make this for my family soon and see if they like it.

This is a quick and easy recipe to prepare on a busy weeknight when dinner needs to be on the table in practically no time. The entire family will enjoy eating this since it is comfort food. When making this, I would use lean ground beef, and drain it before adding the onions. I would also use unsalted tomato sauce, and part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese.

Yum! This goulash recipe sound really good. My Mum always made a version of goulash where she subbed out the pasta and instead threw in some chunky carrots and potatoes (sometimes green peas as well.) Goulash is one of those wonderful recipes that doesn't cost a lot to make and is really difficult to mess up. I really recommend giving it a go.

What size tomato sauce?

Hi! When we make this we use a 15 ounce can of tomato sauce. Where I'm from, Minnesota, we use oregano basil to taste Hot Dish. If chili powder is used we add in 8 ounces of whole kernel corn call it Chili Hot Dish. If you don't have tomato sauce on hand, use a 15 ounce can of crushed tomatoes bump up the seasonings.
