I love pasta - and recently I had a craving!
I made a big pot of Goulash for dinner and served it with some crusty bread and a side salad. This meal always reminds me of when I was young. It was my favorite "school lunch" meal! My mouth would just water thinking about it!
But, this recipe is much better than the cafeteria's recipe!!
I cut some herbs from my herb garden and grabbed this recipe:
1 lb ground beef
1/2 onion chopped
1/2 green pepper chopped
1 T garlic olive oil
3 c water
3 beef bouillon cubes
28 oz can diced tomatoes - I add a few fresh tomatoes, too
8 oz tomato sauce
1 garlic clove chopped
1 t chili powder
salt and pepper
2 cups elbow macaroni
fresh herbs (oregano, basil, chives)
Brown beef and set aside. In a large pot cook peppers, garlic and onions in garlic olive oil. Add all ingredients (except macaroni and fresh herbs) to the pot and bring to a boil. Stir in macaroni and simmer for about 10 minutes until macaroni is cooked. Add fresh herbs and serve immediately with crusty bread!
