American Goulash

Monday, May 20, 2013

There's no wrong way to make a goulash -- and this version is super easy and full of flavor. We just know you'll fall in love with our American Goulash after just one bite!

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 50 min

What You'll Need:

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (28-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • What To Do:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 2-1/2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
     
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat , brown ground beef, bell pepper, and onion 6 to 8 minutes, or until no pink remains in the beef, stirring frequently. Drain off excess liquid. Add remaining ingredients except cheese; mix well. Place in prepared casserole dish.
     
  • Cover and bake 25 minutes. Remove from oven, stir, and top with cheese. Return to oven and bake, uncovered, 15 to 20 additional minutes, or until thoroughly heated and the cheese has melted.

     
  • Notes:

    American Goulash is a perfect dish to make ahead and freeze. You can even freeze it in individual portions so the kids can microwave a dish after school or anytime they need a quick meal.
