Old Fashioned Goulash

This American goulash recipe is the one I grew up with. You cook everything on the stove top, and then bake until all the flavors come together and it gets bubbly and hot.

  • 1 pound elbow macaroni

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Cook macaroni for 3 minute less than the box directions.  Drain.
