I loved this, and it will be in my regular recipe rotation from now on, thanks!
Delicious! I love the garbanzos in this, I ususally make goulash with kidney beans. I didn't have fresh parsley, but used dried and it was still fabulous.
We loved this. BF was a little skeptical at first because it is meat-free, but he was won over at the first bite. Easy, different, healthy, delicious!
This is absolutely delicious! I loved the garbanzo beans in this. I did add a bit of chopped garlic and freshly ground pepper to suit my own tastes. That is the beautiful thing about a dish like this, there are so many things you can do with it. I think I might add chick peas to all my goulash now! Thank you for another tasty healthy meal. :)
Tasty, filling and low fat! I used elbow macaroni, not shells, but made no other changes. The garbanzo beans give this a "meaty" texture without the meat. This is easy enough to make for a hot, healthy lunch. Plus, it uses things that I usually have on hand. Thanx for a lovely low fat pasta recipe.
I'm not going to give this a rating because I didn't make it as the recipe stated. I used all the ingredients but I didn't cook anything except the pasta. So we had it as a salad. Next time I'll follow the recipe and cook everything. Our salad was wonderful. I imagine the cooked version is as good. Thanks for the recipe.
This is a good meatless goulash, and since I grew up on the meaty stuff, this is pure comfort food to me. I didn't care so much for the cumin in this dish though - I prefer goulash to be more Italian inspired. With that in mind I now omit the cumin and instead use a mix of oregano, basil and garlic powder. Also, I stir in the parsley just before serving so it retains its bright flavor. With these changes it's a 5-star meal for our family. Thanks for sharing this recipe that I could tweak to suit our particular tastes! It's one of our favorite weeknight meals.
We really enjoyed this for lunch. Because of where we now live, my husband comes home for lunch most days and I am specifically looking for easy healthy things I can make quickly. This was great. I used whole wheat elbows and my can sizes (both of beans and tomatoes) were a tad smaller then what was called for. The cumin and parsely make this dish. Please do not leave them out! Thanks for a good lunch!
Just made this for my lunch and am enjoying it as I type this. I didn't have cumin on hand and didn't want to run to the store. I did, however, have a can of diced chipotle tomatoes so used those. They're spicy but not insanely so. Also added a small handful of shredded cheddar to my plate. The flavors blend nicely and I feel like I'm eating a fairly healthy lunch. Another Pick-A-Chef choice for Spring 2006.
