This topic also came from a member and I think it's the perfect time for it. Let's share some easy and good "30 minutes meals" sort of...lol What dish do you make in a hurry to feed the family or just yourself? Something simple, maybe all in one pot like a soup or stew, not too many ingredients and everyone likes it.
Mine would have to be Goulash. Over time I've changed the original recipe until it no longer resembles it at all.
But here goes....
Chutzie's One Skillet Goulash
In saucepan cook 2-3 cups of dried, wide noodles in boiling water. I use two or three double handfuls depending on how many I plan on feeding. If you need to stretch this one then add more noodles. You can use other types of pasta as you prefer. Cook about
While that's cooking brown about
a pound of lean ground beef, or whatever you have on hand. I usually add some onion and garlic but it's not necessary. When cooked through make sure to drain off any excess fat. Then dump in 1 can of corn, drained and about
2-3 cups of whatever brand of spaghetti sauce you like. I use about
1/3 of a jar of Prego, Costco size. When the noodles are done drain and add them to the skillet. Stir around and if it seems a bit dry add more spaghetti sauce. We like ours a bit saucy .
Simmer on very low heat to blend the flavors. I usually go for about
20-30 minutes but you can eat it right away if you like. Before serving I usually add some type of cheese on top....either cheddar or Parmesan and warm until it's melty. Some garlic bread is great with this as is fresh fruit or a green salad. Or if your family is like mine...they would just eat a pile of the goulash and a glass of cold milk. It does have your basic food groups all in one pan. And it gets better the next day if there's any leftovers.
OK, your turn. What's your fast and easy meal?
