    davianng's Note:

    Growing up in Boston, I never knew that this 50's "once-a-week-at-home dinner" and "once-a-week-at-school lunch" was a regional dish! I still make this probably once every 2 weeks. Easy, cheap and comfort food all rolled into one huge pot! (It is always called American Chop Suey here, but while I was living in LA friends called it Goulash - so I've compromised!)

      American Chop Suey. My favorite food of all time. I make it with spaghetti sauce instead of the diced tomatoes/tomato sauce on occasion. They call it goulash in the Midwest too. Mushrooms and a stiff shot of garlic and Italian seasonings make great additions too. Way better the next day with a chunk of butter added. Wicked good!

      My family loves this recipe. We like it best when I omit the pasta and spoon the goulash over a bowl of mashed potatoes.

      I've always heard of goulash but I have never eaten it before until last night. I made this last night and my daughter and I thought it was very good! It was so simple and quick to make. The only thing that i changed was the BELL PEPPERS! Believe me we are not finicky eaters around here except for BELL PEPPERS(LOL) so of course I left them out and I did grate in 2 cloves of garlic. I was too tired last night to grate the cheese so we ate without and it was fine that way but tonight I look forward to adding the cheese. By the way this will feed an army! It made a big pot full! Thanks for sharing this recipe I will make it again and again i'm sure! =)
