I have enough Italian blood running through my veins that I require a certain amount of pasta in my diet. Ok. Not really, but you get the idea. One of my very favorite family recipes is goulash. Because we are all trying to eat a bit healthier here, I tweaked the recipe a bit, and it tasted amazing!!!
I simply browned some ground meat~venison~ but if you prefer, ground beef works just as well~with fresh garlic and salt and pepper. Then I drained the excess fat. I added some tomato sauce, chopped onion, bell pepper, fresh rosemary, and fresh oregano straight from the garden. While this simmered, I boiled some veggie pasta. Yep. You read that right. It is really good. Once drained, I added the pasta to the meat and sauce. I topped it with freshly grated parmesan cheese and some fresh from the garden basil. Served with a garden salad, it made a delicious, fresh meal for a summer night.
Let me know if you try it!
