  1. on this recipe could I cook in crockpot with pasta uncooked?

  2. I always thought goulash was the same thing as spaghetti & you just used different noodles.. lol.. Anyway I am making this recipe for dinner tonight I might add a lil taco seasoning & other stuff to give it a mexican flare .. just to try something different.. and then again I might leave it the way it is.. I guess I will find out when I get into the kitchen and see what I have in there to work with. I just want to say I love all of your recipes and every time I am looking for a recipe I come strait to your website… I might of told you this before.. lol Thank you so much for sharing all of your tasty recipes!

  3. I will try this, but I think I will use Elbow Macaroni instead. I make a soup that has been called Goulash in the family. But we add some vegetables, it’s been made in the family for years, but will try this because it looks so good and simple. Thank you

  4. This sounds good

    Made this for Sunday Dinner everyone liked it. Was awsome

  6. it was pretty good BUT ALWAYS add peperoni’s to any goulosh recipe!! it gives it the best flavor mix, my kids wont eat it without them!! yum!

  7. tried this recipe and loved it, used Dreamfield noodles with it and was an awesome dish. My family love casseroles and this was so simple. Will use it again and try adding some vegetables to it, to make a twist on the recipe. I am always trying new things. Thanks! We love Goulash, Speghettli bakes and Potato dishes. Your recipes have made the same dishes come to life.

  8. My mother-in-law makes this but uses cubed cooked ham instead of hamburger. Everything else is about the same. I think I’d like hamburger better. Thanks, love your site.

    My Mom made something she called Goulash but it was
    1 lb hamburger meat and diced onions and garlic powder( amount to your own taste) cooked and drained then add
    one can of yellow corn and 3/4 cup ketchup(adjust amount to your taste requirements) cooked together on medium until the corn is cooked

  10. This turned out really good and was super easy. The only thing I’ll change is the amount of sugar. Was a tad too sweet for what our family is use to.

  11. I make a dish like this…brown my ground beef(drain),peppers,and onions(chopped)…add 2 cans diced tomatoes,1 lg can tomato sauce,&rotini noodles….simmer until noodles are tender…stir in shredded cheese(colby is our favorite) You may season with garlic
    salt. I love one dish meals…we like slaw or a salad would be good.

  12. I make this and put in casserole dish and top with mozzarella cheese, bake in 350 oven till cheese is melted and browned… We call it Cavatini

  13. I love hamburger casserole dishes and this one’s getting added to my list! YUM. Found you over at the Recipe Round Up.
