Lucille Ball Special

"This is a great recipe for a kind of goulash thing, not sure why it's called LBS and not goulash, but oh well - came from my mom. Hearty, pretty easy to make, and you can store and microwave leftovers for the next week!"

    This recipe brings back memories! I was in Seattle, 1971, newly married and didn't know how to boil water. Lucille Ball was a guest on a morning talk show and she shared this recipe that her family enjoyed on vacations. Quick, easy and delicious! I am so glad that Bruce (maybe his mother saw the same program!) posted this goulash as I have been wondering for sometime if it still existed. Thank you for this treasure! A good recipe to pass down to the grandkids!

    I adore Lucille Ball so the name of this recipe caught my eye first. After reading how easy and tasty this sounded had to give it a try. Did make a couple substitutions because I didnt check what I had in the pantry very well. :( Used ground chuck, a large red pepper, tomato sauce instead of tomato juice, and petite diced tomatoes instead of whole tomatoes. Added rotini pasta noodles and really liked that it didnt have to be cooked first. Stirred in about 1/2 cup water to thin down the sauce a little and let simmer. DH had two helpings and even ate leftovers which he rarely does. This is a recipe that could be made in many different ways by adding different seasonings, cheese, V8 juice also. Will make this again! Made and reviewed for PAC 2013.

    This was god, and I loved the fact that I didn't have to boil the noodles first. A tad boring though, so I added some tomato pate and some dried basil to perk it up a bit. Also, I threw in some frozen peas. Thanks for posting! Made for Spring PAC 2013
