My Mom's Goulash recipe. She'd make lots of it and bake it in a big green baking dish. She'd almost always make this when we had visitors because it's inexpensive, easy to put together and it can be made ahead and baked when dinner time rolled around.
The ingredient list is simple: 1# hamburger, a can of diced tomatoes, a bay leaf, garlic, bell pepper, onion and pasta shells. If that hamburger looks a little different to you it's because it's antelope. Only once in a great while do I buy hamburger from the store.Brown the burger in a little olive oil. Remove from the pan and add the green peppers and onions and saute until soft.
Add the can of tomatoes and simmer for 10-15 minutes. In the meantime, cook the pasta and drain it.
Mix the pasta with the burger mixture and put into a casserole dish.
Cover and bake at 350F until bubbly and browned around the edges. During the last few minutes of baking, sprinkle the top with shredded cheese and continue to bake until the cheese has melted. Serve this with some garlic bread and you're all set for a quick, easy and delicious dinner!
