Easy Goulash

This is not the traditional Hungarian recipe by any stretch of the imagination. My mother "threw this together" back in the late 1960s and named it goulash, when she was a young bride and money was very tight. I took her "recipe" and altered it to my own taste, mainly by adding spices. The last time I prepared this dish I made measurements, so I could share this tasty concoction with you. I serve this with a side green salad, garlic toast, and plenty of grated parmesan cheese on top. Note: Without the noodles, this recipe makes a great stir-in to your favorite canned spaghetti sauce!
