*How to make old fashioned goulash

Cook pasta until tender, according to package directions. While cooking, brown the ground beef and onions together in a very large skillet or Dutch oven.
Filter and season with spices to your liking. In a large bowl, mash the tomatoes with a potato masher and add to the beef with the ketchup. Drain the pasta and add it to the meat mixture, stirring well. Taste and add additional seasonings as needed.
I didn't need to add tomato juice to my tomato juice, but if you like your juice a lot, you can add as much tomato juice as you want. Phyllis adds it to her leftovers, which I also recommend, as pasta tends to soak up all the juice over time.

Enjoy !
