A New Dinner Recipe: Goulash

Frequently when I'm scrolling through my Facebook feed I see photos of food shared by other friends.  Most times they are for desserts that look sinfully delicious, but occasionally I'll see one that looks promising for a new dinner idea.  This recipe for Goulash surfaced a few weeks ago, I pinned it, and decided to give it a try last night.  It was delicious (though I made a few adjustments) and will be added to our dinner rotation.  It was great for a cold, wintry night!

adapted from Paula Deen's Goulash

2 lbs. lean ground beef
1/2 t. garlic (from jar)
3 cups water
2 cans (15 oz.) diced tomatoes (I used petite)
2 cans (15 oz.) tomato sauce
1 T. Italian seasoning
1 bay leaf
2 T. soy sauce
1 t. garlic powder
few shakes of salt
few shakes of pepper
2 c. elbow macaroni

Brown ground beef and drain.  Add to large pot, add garlic, and cook for a bit longer.  Add remaining ingredients except for macaroni noodles.  Simmer for 15-20 minutes.  Add macaroni and simmer 20 minutes longer (will thicken during this time).  Serve with warm breadsticks.

The finished product!
