This was excellent! The only thing I did different was to sauté the bell pepper, green and red onion until the onions started to take on that transparent look. I then set them aside and did not add them in until the last two minutes of step 7. Used olive oil to sauté. Everyone really enjoyed this and I can’t wait to make it again!!!

Super easy yet super tasty. I took Charlotte comment on adding green pepper at the end - love those sweet and crisp of green pepper. Since I did not have any Rotini, I served mine with hot French Bread, just like a soup. Hearty and filling meal in less than 20 minutes. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Yep. This what I grew up on. Looks good. I usually got it with macoroni, rather than rotini.

Thank you! This is exactly what I was looking for. It most closely tastes like what my mom made when I lived at home. AWESOME!

This looks just like the recipe my mother used to make when we were kids and now I know it was not authentic but very good nonetheless. I do not eat meat now but I would love to do a vegetarian version of this.

My mom use to make this for us over 40 yrs ago. Only my mom used the macaroni noodles instead of the rotini pasta. Back then that was all they had. I know my mom used just plain hamburger. But it was still wonderful. Thank you so much for posting this and bringing back some wonderful memories of my childhood.

Very good, simple..comfort food...Like the description says "NOT to be confused with Authentic Hungarian Goulash" this is the AMERICANIZED version...

This is pure comfort food. It's quick, easy, something the whole family will eat and it just makes you feel good inside. It's also made up of stuff that I always have on hand. I did up the garlic quite a bit as we go kind of nuts over the stuff here. I would definitely suggest this to any working mom trying to get a meal on the table for her hungry crew after a long day at work.
