    Denise in NH's Note:

    This is my basic recipe for American Chop Suey. I sometimes add more spices to give it a little different taste, maybe a little Sage, Thyme or whatever. My DH said it wouldn't be "normal" if I followed my recipe exactly. This is a real comfort food. The Prep and Cook time are estimates

      This is a lot like what we grew up calling Goulash. It's hard to find a goulash recipe without it being Hungarian Goulash, which is completely different from this. This was a bit more sofisticated than ours though. We just did, macaroni, onions, stewed tomatoes, and ground beef. I think I like mom's better but thats probably because its the flavors I am used to, and with fewer ingredients, it's easier to through together. ;)

      This is one of my all time favorite meals. My mother used to make this for us when we were kids and I'm still making it. I always thought she invented it!! We never added the diced tomatoes or wine though, so when I made it this time I followed your recipe exactly. GREAT COMFORT FOOD. Also, I used thin spaghetti. Very very good recipe. Thanks Denise
