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!

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! =)

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

We really enjoyed this and it made a lot, so I was able to stock my freezer with the leftovers! I only used 2 cups of (gluten-free) macaroni and this was plenty. It's very easy to make this pure comfort food.

Back in West Lafayette IN my mother made this about once a month. She added 1 or 2 Bay Leaves to it & they really enhanced the flavor. Sooo Good!!

Thanks for posting davianng. Another solid rendition of goulash. This was a good one much like a chunky Spaghetti or chunky pasta in a bowl. It was good both the day of and the next day. We started with it as written but ended up using more cheese than stated. It could use more seasoning so next time I will add some italian seasoning and maybe some mushrooms.<br/>It made a lot and doubling it fed an army. Definitely a good weekday meal. Made for Name that ingredient tag game. Enjoy! ChefDLH

I made this a little differently to create a healthier version. Used ground turkey and wheat pasta. This came out amazing! I will definitely be adding this to my list of favorites! Oh, and I boiled less pasta cause I'm scaling back on carbs.

Being raised in Boston, too, this is the way we've always eaten it! Definitely a family favorite. Only thing different I do is add 2 stalks of chopped celery!

Melted the cheese right in the dutch oven, also added soy sauce to the recipe. Couple splashes here and ther along with 1lb of old folks medium sausage browned. They add a nice savory flavor to the mix.
