Eats: Goulash5:00 PM
Mmmm Goulash. I figured since I have been posting about food more often on this blog, I should add the occasional junk food on here. This is one of my family favorites and I am pretty sure it was a staple dinner for most families in my area growing up, everyone just added a little something different to their own. I made this at my housewarming party and a lot of people liked it, so I made a big batch of it again to bring over to my parents house the other week.
I made a double-batch for about six people, but if you want a smaller batch here is what you will need:
-1 box shells and cheese
-1 pound ground beef/turkey
-1 large tomato or two small, chopped
-1 small onion, chopped
-Seasonings (I have my usual black pepper, season salt & cayenne pepper).
First you will want to boil a pot of water, and cook the noodles for the shells and cheese. While that is cooking, heat up a large skillet, with a tiny amount of olive oil in it. Next, break apart meat in the skillet, and cook until half-done. Next, add the chopped tomato and onion, and season to taste. Cook until done.
Drain the noodles and mix in the cheese, and then add the cooked meat, tomato & onion mix. You are all done! There are healthier options for this, you can use wheat noodles, healthier or non-dairy cheese, lean turkey or meat substitute, but I thought I would share the typical way we ate this as kids. Not very nutritional, but delicious and cheap.
