Speedy Goulash

Another great, quick, weekday meal, from one of my Gooseberry Patch cookbooks.

Super simple to put together, and if your family likes pasta, they will surely enjoy this one.

  1. Oh my gosh, here in New England, we grew up with something similar, but it didn't have any sour cream or other dairy in it, and included cinnamon. It was called American Chop Suey, and instead of cumin calls for chili powder and cinnamon. I've heard about variations of it called Goulash but never seen a recipe for it, I'll have to give it a try. I'm making your Irish Soda Bread this weekend
