This take on Hungarian goulash, a hearty beef and noodle recipe, uses picante sauce for the tomato base, adding an extra layer of flavor to a fast, filling meal. Seasoned ground beef and tender macaroni noodles simmer in a creamy, savory tomato sauce, then get a sprinkle of cheddar cheese just before serving so it all melts together in one skillet. With all the flavors kids love, it’s sure to be a family favorite.

Ingredients

cost per recipe: $5.48

  • 4 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni (about 1 cup)
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning, crushed
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 cup Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Step 1

    Cook and drain the macaroni according to the package directions.  While the macaroni is cooking, season the beef with salt and pepper.  Cook the beef and Italian seasoning in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat.

  • Step 2

    Add the soup, picante sauce and cooked macaroni to the skillet.  Cook until the mixture is hot, stirring occasionally.  Season to taste.  Sprinkle with the cheese and serve hot.

    Goulash a delicious and very typical hungarian dish. Nothing to do with this variation of "maccaroni & cheese"

    I firmly believe it is a lack of respect to call this
    (otherwise easy dish) Goulash.

    I was searching the site for something to make with what I already had on hand and only knew that I wanted beef. I found this recipe and thought I'd give it a try. I didn't have the celery or oregano but everything still had good flavor. My only issue is that it wasn't spicy enough. Plenty of leftovers for one person too which I love.

    I've been making these tasty favorite for many years. Some of my friends don't eat beef, so I use 2 chicken breasts in its place. Still tasty and the calories even drop down a bit. :)
