Made for Fall PAC 2011 and I added more garlic for our tastes but otherwise followed the instructions. Definately a keeper and sooo easy to make. Next time I might add some corn for us just to put in some more vegies into my DH.

I also doubled the recipe and added 1/2 cup shredded italian cheese and 5 slices american cheese at the end for some added creaminess. Thanks! Reminds me of th goulash my mom used to make when I was a kid.

I doubled the recipe, added a bit more sugar, a little more garlic, but otherwise stayed true to the original. It just wasn't the consistency I like-I like it thicker, deeper flavor and the tomatoes less visible. So , after I made it in the skillet, I put it in the crock pot on low several hours. It was perfect! My husband added corn to his, my kids sprinkled mozzarella on theirs, but they all loved it.
