“In Memory of my son who loved this. As a single Mom I use to combine ingredients that were filling..you know "lots for less". This was the only one that continued on and one of my very favorite meals. Hope it becomes a favorite for your family also. I guarantee you'll return for seconds.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta in a large saucepan as you are preparing remaining ingredients.
  2. Fry bacon to a crispness in a large frying pan and remove to a paper towel leaving drippings in the pan.
  3. They will be absorbed.
  4. Break apart the ground beef into small chunks and brown in the bacon drippings adding the onion and the garlic.
  5. Stir frequently as the meat browns and the onion becomes translucent.
  6. Add the tomatoes and stir to mix thoroughly.
  7. Allow to cook a few minutes for the meat to absorb the flavors.
  8. Drain the cooked macaroni and add to the pan, again mixing well.
  9. Cook on a low flame until almost all juices are absorbed. Crumble bacon over the Goulash before serving.
  10. Leftovers taste better the next day, so don't be afraid you are making too much.
  11. Goes well with a salad and french or italian bread.
