Great Grandma's Goulash

Well, it's snowing here in Utah and the temperatures are frigid (maybe not for you Wyoming or Alaska people) but we're not playing outside . . . not even to make a snowman! This weekend, I just wanted something good. I called my sister, Makayla, and asked if she wanted to come make me something. She kindly obliged (although jokingly as she has a new baby and lives 6 hours from here). She said she was craving goulash. So, Keek, this one is for you. I've had it in the archives to post for over a year now (I think this pattern is repeating itself). This is one of the recipes my grandmother came and made to put in the recipe book of my great-grandmother's recipes (see that here).


1 lb hamburger
1 pkg shell or elbow macaroni
1 large can diced tomatoes
1/2 onion, diced
1/2-1 green pepper, diced
seasonings (salt, pepper, basil, oregano)
a little sugar

Brown Hamburger with onion, green pepper, salt, and pepper. Add tomatoes, seasonings, and a little sugar to taste. Prepare noodles. Combine and serve with parmesean cheese. Stay inside and enjoy! Welcome to comfort food season. I'm brainstorming ideas for Thanksgiving Dinner. Please share any must-have dishes/recipes that you can't let a Thanksgiving go by without indulging.
