Goulash

Goulash is a meat sauce served on either rigatoni pasta or elbow pasta in our house.  Tonight I made beef goulash.  I will say…it hit the spot!!

Here is how I make our goulash.  (Recipe at bottom)

I use a pound of ground beef and a 16 oz box of pasta.  You can add as many onions and peppers as you like!!

Boil the ground beef in water until no longer pink

Strain and add onion and peppers (these are our frozen peppers and onion from the garden)

Cover with sauce to the thickness you want to serve over your pasta

In the mean time boil your pasta

Once pasta is cooked, scoop some of the meat sauce onto the pasta to mix it up

Serve immediately so it’s nice and hot!!  A green salad goes well with this and some fresh homemade bread!

Spaghetti and Meat Sauce = Ultimate Comfort Food Dinner

It was a nice day finally getting a little warmer and glimpses of sun but still cool enough to enjoy a comfort food dinner.  I opened a few jars of our sauce, browned some organic irradiated beef and boiled up some whole grain pasta.  I’m ready to burst but it was worth it!!!
