Out of time and nothing for dinner? Put this great “unplanned” one-skillet meal into your arsenal of dinnertime rescues – your family will be so happy. Goulash is my kid-friendly go-to dinner when I am running short on time, energy or ideas and it is a big hit every time!
Goulash is a title that has been highly stretched over the years. My apologies to all authentic Hungarian Goulash lovers out there. It is not my intent to insult a dearly loved cultural cuisine but so many American families do call this goulash – I did my research on this – that I am sticking with it. 🙂

Add pasta to skillet and gently mix in.
Heat for 5 minutes on medium.
