Mama's Dinner in a Dash
25 mins (prep 5, cooking 20)
16 ingredients
6-8 servings
Called 'hot dish' or 'goulash' in my family this was basically a dish that we probably ate weekly when I was growing up. Most likely because it was fast, tasty, filling and well... cheap! lol Feel free to put in 'whatcha got' and leave out 'whatcha dont got'! If you like it spicy try adding some salsa with the tomatoes or add a dash or two of hot sauce on your plate. You can toss in some herbs and spices if you like or just have it as is. This is comfort food to me. Note: I like this better with the pasta cooked separately as it seems to come out more al dente. There is a lot to be said though for LESS dishes so sometimes I cook the pasta as listed below, all in the same pan! Hope you enjoy!
