Quick, Cheap and Easy Goulash - Under $5


  • 1/2 lb. ground beef (or turkey)
  • 1 box elbow macaroni
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cans tomato paste
  • garlic and onion powders - optional
  • salt and pepper


Boil macaroni according to package and drain. Meanwhile, brown ground beef seasoning with salt, pepper, and a shake or two of garlic and onion powders. Add tomato paste to ground meat and mix, sometimes I add a splash of water to thin it out. Add macaroni to ground meat and combine, adjust salt and pepper to taste.

This serves my family of four with leftovers and they love it!

I make something very close to this, but I add a can of tomatoes, chili powder and some kidney beans. Also very good, cheap, and filling! (12/13/2007)

I make something similar by preparing a box of macaroni and cheese and cooking the hamburger with chopped onion and adding stewed (diced) tomatoes. We love it. (05/02/2008)
