This was not good. It was just too bland. The kidney were an odd touch and were confusing to my family as it looked like it was supposed to be chili mac, but was tasteless. The word "goulash" in the recipe title is odd as well, as there is no paprika in it. I heard people refer to any sort of pasta/ground beef skillet meal as "goulash" when I was growing up, so I get that broader use of the term. I'm sure "Aunt Fran" is a lovely lady, but I did not like her "goulash" and will not make it again. Sorry.

Finally a Goulash recipe that doesn't have spaghetti sauce in it! This is much closer to what my mother used to make 45 years ago. I don't remember my mother having beans in hers though! I can't wait to try this!!!

My picky kids and I love it when I made the following changes: 1 lb hamburger, 1 lb turkey, 1 15 oz can tomato sauce, 1 1/2 beef bouillon granules, 1 tsp Mrs. Dash, a little bit of sugar, a dab of Worcestershire sauce

I added fresh & dried basil & oregano leaves to punch the flavor, but it needed more or fresher herbs. It was easy and a different use for ground beef.

Making this tonight. Using sausage in place of ground beef. Plan on adding chopped celery and carrots as did another lady.

Quick and simple, but underspiced. My grandson liked it that way, but I added HOT salsa and a dab of sour cream to my portion, making it a bit more lively!

I love this recipe. It reminds of the goulash I had when I was a young girl. Absolutely delicious.

This recipe was excellent...loved the flavor and simplicity...you can pretty much add whatever you want to this recipe. I used 1 1/2 cup of beef broth in place of the bouillon and it worked great.

I added some chopped celery, carrot and green pepper to the onions (packing more veggies in for the kids). I also used a large can of spaghetti sauce and an entire box of spiral pasta (12 oz). My whole family loved the flavor of this! I loved how simple it was to get dinner together - and - I'm sure the leftovers will be great too!
