I always use corkscrew noodles when preparing this, because the sauce seems to cling to them better than it does to flat noodles—ensuring plenty of good taste in every bite!—Janie Moore, Marion, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 8, 2012

We have renamed this our family goulash. My son asks for it every time he returns home. I have made a double batch and frozen one for a later date and it works really well.

Made this according to the recipe. Used whole wheat spirals. My wife & I loved it. Had leftovers the next night and was just as good.

Very tasty. Only two changes I made was I used Fire Roasted Tomatoes and Wheat spiral noodles Next time will make it with regular spirals to taste the difference. Husband loved it!

This was very good. I used 2 fresh plum tomatoes instead of can. I cut the french-fried onions to half a can. Everyone in the family liked it.
