Interesting blend of ingredients that produces a very tasty sauce. However it was a little thin for spaghetti noodles, I will serve the leftover sauce over elbow macaroni and maybe add a couple tbs of tomato paste to thicken it. I cut this in half and reduced the amount of pepper to about 1/4 tsp and omitted the sugar as the tomato juice has enough for flavor. This is a great go to quick recipe. Thanks! *Made for fall 2009 PAC*

Very tasty! I didn't have any canned tomatoes so I used just the tomato juice and some fresh tomatoes. I really liked the use of bacon in the goulash. That gave it a very interesting taste. Not sure if I would use the spaghetti noodles again just personal preference. It was very good though and my kids LOVED! DH really enjoyed as well! Thank you so much! Made for Fall PAC 2008
