This is the dish that my parents called goulash. Authentic it is not, I'm QUITE sure. However it is quick, easy and pretty darn tasty!

My husband Brian loves this meal. Its one of the few he can cook himself and it tastes almost as good as mine. There's very little prep work, just dicing 1/2 an onion and running a few cloves of garlic through a garlic press for the veg, browning beef and boiling pasta. No biggie!

Give this one a shot on a busy night. Its a family pleaser around here!

serves 4-6, ready in 30 min or less!
1 lb ground beef, browned and drained well
2 cans stewed tomatoes
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
S&P (start with 1/4 t kosher salt, taste and adjust from there, about 4 grinds black pepper)
1 t paperkia
1/2 t oregano
Elbow noodles (1/2 box)

Brown the beef and onions. Drain well. Add garlic, spices, S&P and tomatoes, juice and all. Using the end of your spatula cut each tomato slice into quarters (if desired), stir well and bring to a simmer. Simmer while pasta cooks, about 15 min total. Top cooked pasta with goulash and enjoy!
