Too funny! I got this recipe from "Coed" magazine when I was in 7th grade home economics in Wash. DC. It became my specialty. I made it often growing up and my 4 kids were raised on it. I am now 60. We eat this recipe at least twice monthly because one of them always asks for it. The only difference is my recipe called for a can of corn niblets and 1 tbs of worcestershire sauce. I've even passed it on to new brides in my shower gift of quick and easy recipes for the newlywed.
This is exactly what I had growing up too! and now again that times are tough, we're having it tonight in my household. Thanks for posting! I was thinking of a budget friendly dinner and had totally forgot about this childhood dish! -- Dannwn
This is basically my mother's goulash! It's a very wonderful dish that I've never complained about making, eating, or serving to company! This is a recipe everyone has to make once! Great Job!
And THIS recipe itself is the BEST I've tried! Even better than the Paula Deen version!
I think this is one of the first things I learned to cook "all by myself" when I was growing up. The only difference is I always add a chopped green or red pepper to it. My grandma taught me how to cook and never used measurements so I never knew how much macaroni to add to make a smaller batch. It is always better the second day though so that is not a big problem. LOL! I do prefer diced tomatoes and have used a can of V8 instead of water if I had one.
You can really stretch the serving by just adding more macaroni too.
If my entire childhood be condensed, this would be what it tastes like. I added some cilantro and several other spices and it was fabulous! This really does go perfectly with some garlic bread and a dark green salad. Will be making this meal many more times!
It's nice, quick, easy, and we always have the ingredients on hand. Except I used diced tomatoes instead of stewed. But this turned out good. I will keep it as one of those "oh boy, I forgot to figure out what we're having for dinner" night plans. Thanks for sharing!
My mom used to make this too, back in the 1960s. She added canned corn, and we called it goulash. (It was years before I found out it isn't true goulash.) I use broth instead of water, and I usually need to double the recipe because I just can't quit filling my bowl! This is great comfort food.
We loved this!! Changed it up a bit; used ground italian sausage instead of beef, added extra canned diced tomatoes, used whole wheat macaroni, and added paprika and two dried red chili peppers. It was so good, so cheap, and so easy and quick to make! Thanks for the recipe!!
This dish is so good!! Very economical, easy, and tastey! Thanks!!
