This is just like the goulash from the 1950's that my mom would often make. The only change I made was to add 2 tsp paprika. The ketchup really gives it a good flavor. I am glad I came across this recipe.

Fast and easy to make that is the way I need our weekday meals and this one fit the bill. I cooked the noodles for half the amount of what the manufacturer stated. This way the noodles absorbed the liquids in the bottom of the pan. I've never added Parmesan before to goulash but will from now on. Everyone loved the extra flavor it gave the dish. Thanks for a great recipe!
