Alright so now that you all think that all that we eat around here is sweets, I’ve decided it’s time to share a go-to recipe for the Melrose household. Riley doesn’t eat meat, but as long as she can pick it out we’re good. So an easy go-to meal for us is Goulash. Riley loves pasta and I can make a ton and have leftovers for the week. Joe’s schedule is crazy now that he is student teaching and then working nights at Lowes so we don’t usually get a meal together as a family during the week. Therefore, I try to make something we all like on Sunday.
In a dutch oven saute ground turkey over medium high heat. Add onions and saute until tender.
Add 3 cups of water with tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, fresh garlic, Italian seasoning, soy sauce, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Stir well.
Place lid on and allow to cook for 20-25 minutes. In the meantime, allow your two year old to straddle the counter and line up every possible spoon she can find.
Seriously, how cute is she?! Let me tell you looks can be deceiving! She can be a monster.
Add any kind of pasta. Stir well and return lid to pot and simmer on low for about 20 minutes. Allow mixture to sit after turning off the heat. Top with Parmesan cheese and watch out because it’s super duper hot. Riley always has to add an ice cube even if it’s had a chance to sit in the freezer to cool down for five minutes.
Yum- I haven't had goulash in a long time! I worked at a camp in college and there were some Hungarians on staff with me. I remember loving it, but for some reason, have never thought to make it myself.
I love the pic of your daughter lining up the spoons on the counter… what a great way to keep her entertained 🙂
I'd love it if you'd link this up to Food Adventure Friday!
Wow Goulash! I loooove it so much. Btw I am Hungarian and we make it in a different way. We are making it for soup with beef (or pork). But love this way also. I am following you via Bloglovin. It was so great to see someting Hungarian in the bloggy world! Hugs, Hanni
