This is my take on American Goulash, Down-Home Goulash. Originally I ran across a recipe for goulash while enjoying some good ol Paula Deen ( Bobby’s Goulash.) The recipes are similar, enough so that I have to make sure I give a wink and a nudge to the Deens. Now Bobby might not like mine as much as his mama’s but in this house we think it is pretty darn good (we liked Paula’s too don’t get me wrong.) Now the pasta turns out really soft for those who aren’t familiar with country goulash. It is also one of the most versatile recipes. The additions you can add are endless and all just as good. Mushrooms, bell peppers, olives, corn, etc. are all great. It really just all depends on what you and your family enjoy. We garnished with shredded cheddar and sour cream, but again its all about what you like. Just experiment and have fun and let me know how it turns out! If you make it and really do not like the mushy noodles (I know some folks just don’t) they you can boil and drain the pasta separate, you will just want to lessen the amount of broth. Just add in until it is the consistency you like, and be sure to watch your salt so you don’t make it too salty. If you are unsure just half the recipe and try it out since this does make a pretty healthy pot of food.
