Dad's Goulash

This is a throw together recipe that you can make over the stove top or in a crock pot. My dad use to make this for us growing up.

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 onion (chopped)
salt & pepper
2 small cans tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can corn (don't drain)
5 T. spaghetti seasoning mix
3-4 cups water
2-3 handfuls elbow macaroni
mozzarella cheese

Brown ground beef together with chopped onion, season with salt & pepper. Drain. In a crockpot, add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, stewed tomatoes, corn, spaghetti seasoning mix and water. Stir in the ground beef. Simmer on high for 2-3 hours. The last hour, add the macaroni. Watch and stir the mixture. If it is getting too thick, add more water. If it seems thin, cook it a little longer. Before serving, sprinkle mozzarella cheese all over the top. This is even better as leftovers the next day!

***We like to eat this with saltine crackers or bread sticks.
