BEEF MACARONI GOULASH SOUP
This is a classic recipe that everyone should have in their repertoire. It’s easy to make and great for a crowd. Because of it’s similarities to spaghetti even kids like it…most kids anyway.
You can use any shape of pasta. Traditionally, elbow macaroni is used. However, I didn’t have elbow macaroni so I used what I had.
I’ve seen recipes for Goulash Soup with vegetables such as corn, peppers, even green beans, and carrots. However, my recipe for Beef Macaroni Goulash Soup is pretty straightforward with beef, macaroni, and tomato sauce. In my opinion, it’s vegetable soup when you add, well, vegetables.
If you’ve followed me for very long, you may remember I shared Old-Fashioned Goulash a while back. That recipe and this recipe are very similar. However, Beef Macaroni Goulash Soup has more broth and is soupier. Plus, there’s also no cheese in this version.
