frugal recipe // goulash

My version of goulash is slightly different than the traditional "soup" way. Growing up, I loved pasta. As an adult, I still love pasta (much to Kyle's chagrin). When I was little, my mom would make her version of goulash and it was an extremely cost-effective and delicious meal. We had plenty for dinner and so many leftovers! This is how I make it now, which isn't that far off from my mom's version. It's definitely one of those feel-good nostalgic meals.

This recipe is so simple.


One pound elbow noodles
One half pound ground meat or meat replacement; I like Gardein's Ultimate Beefless Ground
One jar of pasta sauce
Desired spices; I use nutritional yeast, Italian seasoning, and black pepper

Brown the meat/meat replacement in a pan with spices, drain.
Cook the pasta to desired tenderness, then drain.
In a large bowl, combine the meat/meat replacement, pasta, and sauce.
Serve and top with your choice of cheeses, breadcrumbs, etc.

You're done! It makes a ton of food and if you play your cards right, you can make this for under $5.00 for the entire batch.
