I don’t actually think this was my grandma’s goulash. However, growing up it was always called Grandma’s Goulash – I didn’t ask any questions. I just ate it. Delicious!
1 1/2 – 2 lbs ground meat (I used beef and pork)
1 T. paprika
salt and pepper
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic
16 oz. pasta sauce
1/3 c. sliced black olives
1 lb. cooked pasta (I use spirals or elbows)
1. Brown ground beef and pork in dutch oven. Season with 1 T. paprika and salt and pepper while browning. Drain.
2. Add chopped green pepper, onion, carrot and garlic. Cook over medium high until onion is tanslucent.
3. Add pasta sauce. Cook through about 5 to 10 minutes.
4. Toss with pasta. Heat another 5 to 10 minutes.
This can easily be made gluten free if you substitute rice pasta.
