    The name says it IS *The Best Goulash* ! Very easy to make. I added Crushed Red Peppers to mine, but everyone else loved it just as it was written and posted to this site. Thanks for sharing a receipe even a young adult can prepare and enjoy.

    Delicious! Best goulash recipe ever! Make sure to use extra sharp cheddar cheese and put an extra 1/2cup or so. We look forward to leftovers, its even better!

    Very good! I don't like corn in my goulash so I omitted that. I also added in a bit of garlic powder after the meat was done cause I felt like it needed a bit more garlic. I also threw in a little bit of oregano. It's not even out of the oven yet but just eating it before it went it - it was very yummy! Thanks!

    This was wonderful. I could not get enough. I ate it for lunch and dinner for three days. I can't wait to make it again.

    My family liked this meal the other night. I was looking for something I could make with the little means I had in the house that night and this fit the bill. I did substitute egg noodles for the macaroni because it is all I had on hand. But the family enjoyed it. My husband really enjoyed it. Thank you.
