Fiddling around and guess what? they all like it lol Good way to get the kids to eat their veggies and not complain (too much) about it. Play around with the vegetables, see what you can get away with.

Somewhat of a unique ingredient combination but it works great to make an tasty & different goulash. I increased the beef & reduced the pasta. I only used 1/2 of the mushroom soup as a result & cut back the tomatoes abit. I used 10 oz of spinach but, although we enjoy spinach, next time will only use 5 oz as I found it overpowered the other flavours abit. I didn't include the cabbage this time but definatley keep it as an option for next time. Everything cooked together well & at the end I added a sprinkle of seasoning salt to finish merging all the flavours together better. Easy recipe to make & has all the ingredients I enjoy, thanks for sharing.
Wonderful addition to my regular meals! I never liked goulash growing up so when my husband made this request I looked for a different version. He's diabetic so I used Dreamfields pasta and ground turkey. When I double this I use cream of celery soup and cream of mushroom soup. (I usually leave off the optional ingredients) This is sooo YUMMY!
This was pretty good. Thanks for sharing.
