I was recently told that there are many different types of goulash, and this may or may not be one of them. However, my mom always called this dish goulash, so that’s what I plan to call it regardless of what it should technically be called!
- 1 lb of Medium Shells
- 1 Jar of Spaghetti Sauce
- 1 lb of Ground Beef
- Shredded Mozzarella
First, I boil the medium shells on the stove until al dente, using a large stock pot. While these are cooking, I cook the ground beef in a skillet, you can also use ground turkey. This time I just warmed up my pre cooked ground beef crumbles from National Steak and Poultry. Then, I heat up the spaghetti sauce for 2 minutes in the microwave. I drain the noodles and the beef and mix them together in the pot, stirring in the warm spaghetti sauce. I serve this topped with mozzarella cheese and a side salad with garlic bread and you have dinnerâ€¦and probably a lot of leftovers too!
Another nice change to this meal is putting the mixture in a baking dish, top with mozzarella cheese and bake in the oven on 350* for about 20 minutes. This makes it taste more like a casserole style dish.
