Old School Goulash


2 lb ground beef
1 yellow onion chopped
3 cups dried elbow macaroni
1/2 cup water
2- 8 oz cans tomato sauce
1 Tbsp olive oil
2- 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes DO NOT DRAIN
2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 cups frozen corn kernels or canned


Chop the onion and cook along with the ground beef over medium heat in a large skillet. Cook until the beef is no longer pink. Drain and rinse with hot water. Set aside.
Wipe the now empty skillet out with a paper towel and add the uncooked macaroni. Add the water, tomato sauce, olive oil, diced tomatoes with their juices, basil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir to combine and bring to a boil over medium heat. Place the lid on the skillet, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring halfway through.
The macaroni should be al dente after 15 minutes of simmering. Add the cooked ground beef back to the skillet along with the corn, stir to incorporate and heat through, about 5 minutes. Enjoy!


This one-pan Old School Goulash is the ultimate in quick and easy comfort food. Adding corn ensures little ones will be eager to try this family favorite!
