Bonita's kitchen-Request of the week-Goulash
Goulash is a hearty meal, this is a serving for four. When making goulash you could bake it in the oven and top with shredded cheese or the way we make it in Newfoundland on the stove top.
This goulash is made with 1/4 cup of ketchup and you wouldn't believe the difference in the flavour it makes. Give it a try and let me know what you think, there are so many ways to make this one dish. My sister likes to add lots of colourful bell peppers in hers and corn.
You can add so many different vegetables or just make it With your basic ingredients, anyway you make this delicious dish you will go back for seconds and thirds.

Prep time 15 minutes, cooking time 20 minutes,
1- Start with frying your ground beef until golden brown, topped with your onion, salt and pepper, mushrooms.
2- Continue sautéing your beef until your onions have softened, and starting to brown, then this is a good time to add your chopped garlic only cook garlic for a minute or so never let burn.
3- In a small saucepan half full with water start boiling on medium heat with a pinch of salt and olive oil.
4- Then add your macaroni, boil until your noodles are part cooked this will take 10 to 15 minutes.
5- When cooked drain water and add a dash of olive oil, place back on your stove top with the heat turned off.

7- Then add meat sauce to noodles at this point you will taste it to see if you need more salt or pepper, mix together you can also add any spice of your choice for your taste.
Some helpful tips: When making this dish or cooking any pasta always salt your pot water and under cook your pasta by two or three minutes because by the time you add the sause and mix it together it is prefect. This is the only time you can season your noodles is while its boiling. Also after your pasta is taken out of your pot water drizzle it with some olive oil this will keep it from sticking together. Also keep some of your pot water about 1/4 cup to add to your pasta sause it will help stick the sause to your pasta noodles.
