Super Easy One-Skillet Meal Your Whole Family Will Love

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. :)

Easy One-Skillet Goulash Recipe

2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 can sloppy joe sauce
Pasta (elbows or shells work great)
Shredded cheddar cheese

Boil water in a sauce pan.
Add pasta* and boil till tender according to box directions.
Fry the ground beef in a large non-stick skillet on medium - medium high heat.
Drain the fat when the ground beef is no longer pink.
Add full can (16 oz -ish) of sloppy joe sauce.
Mix through.
Add pasta to skillet and gently mix in.
Heat for 5 minutes on medium.
Dish up into microwavable bowls.
Add approximately 1/2 cup of shredded cheese to the top.**

*Shells, elbow macaroni, spirals or rotini all work well.
**If you prefer your cheese to be very melted, microwave each bowl 30 seconds.
