Hamburger Goulash



Hamburger Goulash

This is a quick and easy meal to make.  I think I have made this since the day I got married almost 54 years ago.  It is total comfort food!  Sprinkle some cheese on top if you like, but I like mine without.  Serve with green beans or a salad.

  • 2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 (15-oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (14.5-oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 8 oz. small shell macaroni, cooked
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, if desired

Brown ground beef, onion and garlic until no longer pink and onion is translucent.  Stir in salt and paprika.

Add tomato sauce and diced tomatoes and simmer while cooking pasta.  Add pasta and serve.

Serves 6 to 8.  (If you’re lucky.  You might need to double this recipe.)
