I first had Goulash at one of my dearest friend’s house. When we used to work together I would go over to Becky’s house every other Monday for a while and we would scrapbook together. She has the BEST scrapbooking room I’ve ever seen, it’s practically like her own little store. She’s got more stuff than I’ve ever seen all in one place at someone’s house. I would usually go over in the morning and stay until mid afternoon, so Becky would feed me lunch. This was one of our lunches we had together. It was so delicious. I felt like I was right at home, Becky is like a mother to me. Every time I make it, I think of that special time we had it together.

[My 2 Cents]
I didn't have macaroni when I was making this, so I just used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Penne Rigate.
