Hot dish or goulash, call it what you want. I grew up on this quick and easy meal. I have tweaked the ingredients a bit, but the results are just as good. Serve with a side salad for a great weekday dinner. Enjoy.

This turned out great! Exactly what I was looking for on this Saturday night with no supper plans. I used fresh onion,and my cheese was not fat free, but followed to a tee otherwise. Had a sweeter taste than goulash I've made before with tomato sauce/juice. Thanks for a great new recipe! Read More

It isn't half bad nice for a quick dinner. I left out the corn for picky eaters and added pepper. It was better than I expected it to be. Read More

This turned out great. Both my husband & I loved it. I tweaked it a little bit: left out the corn & the cheese & added just a little Worcester sauce & a little melted butter! Tasted great!! Read More

Have made this recipe twice....first as is and then with personal adjustments...as all cooks do! It was great as is with no complaints here! Personal adjustments? Only one cup of macaroni 3 cloves of fresh garlic minced substituted one can of tomato soup for diced tomatoes with Italian herbs & spices one chopped onion fresh lots of fav spices as desired 3/4 shredded cheddar IN casserole....then another 3/4 of cheddar on top. Pretty hard to stop eating.... Read More

This recipe went over pretty well. I used frozen corn instead of canned corn. My son was disappointed when I told him we were having ghoulash (which he loves) but then there were no tomatoes. I'd say maybe a little less corn and maybe add a can of diced tomatoes but otherwise it was a good recipe. Read More

I took some suggestions from other reviewers and added a little Worcestershire sauce about 1/2 an onion and subbed a can of tomato sauce for the soup and cheddar cheese for American because that's what I had on hand. It was easy and my entire family was happy with it! This one is definitely a keeper! Thank you for sharing it! Read More
