Goulash? What is goulash you may ask...well it's one of my husband's favorite go-to meals, or at least he just loves to say the word...goulash! It is a simple, hearty meal of meat, pasta, tomatoes and cheese. This version I found on Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice has an Italian twist with some veggies added in and it's even better the next day! I highly recommend doubling the recipe to freeze for a busy night.

Italian-style Goulash (by Reeni but adapted to Wildtree by Jen)
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, diced
 1/2 green bell pepper, diced or sliced in short, thin strips
Garlic Grapeseed Oil, for sauteing
1 large zucchini, thinly sliced into coins
kosher salt and fresh black pepper to taste
1 TBSP Wildtree's Hearty Spaghetti Blend
1/2 TBSP Wildtree's Garlic Galore
1 teaspoon Wildtree's Basil Pesto Blend (or some fresh chopped basil)
14 ounce can diced tomatoes
8 ounces gemelli or elbow pasta
2/3 cup Romano or Parmesan cheese, grated, plus more for serving

1. In a large skillet brown ground beef over medium heat. Remove cooked beef, set aside, drain grease.

2. Saute onion and bell pepper in two TBSP Garlic GSO over medium low heat until tender. Add garlic and saute until fragrant. Add zucchini, season with salt and pepper, add herbs, saute until zucchini start to soften around the edges. Add hamburger back in and tomatoes. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.

3. Meanwhile cook pasta to al dente according to package directions in plenty of salted water.

4. In a large mixing bowl toss pasta, ground beef and cheese together. Serve immediately with crusty Italian bread and extra cheese for sprinkling over top. Serves 4-5.
