Gravitt's Goulash

   I don't know about your family, but my family LOVES goulash.  It's one of those "feel good" kinda meals.  It ain't fancy but it sure is delicious and filling.  Anyhow, here is how I make it.

Gravitt's Goulash
                                                  2 lbs. hamburger meat        
       1 T. garlic powder          
3 c. water
  2 cans tomato sauce (15 oz. ea.)   
         2 cans petite diced tomatoes (15 oz. ea.)
 2 T. soy sauce      
      1 T. seasoning salt         
 2 cups elbow macaroni/macaroni shells

   In a large pot, brown the hamburger meat.  When fully cooked, do not drain off the fat.

    Stir in the chopped onions and cook the onions for a few minutes with the hamburger meat.  Stir in the tomato sauce, tomatoes, water and all the spices.  Cook over low heat for 17 minutes.  As the sauce cooks, cook the macaroni according to the package directions.  Once the macaroni is cooked, drain and pour in with the sauce.  Let the flavors "meld" together for about 10 minutes and then serve.  

We love to serve this goulash with a side of Au Gratin Potatoes and some Homemade bread.  They go so well together!!!
