So, if you're not from New England you would probably call this Goulash or American Goulash. Well up here in Maine its chop suey and man oh man is it good! If you're looking for a meal that you can throw all in one pot and have it ready in 20 minutes, this is it ladies and gents!
Some nights I just want a hot home cooked meal without all the extra dishes and without having to run to the store to grab obscure ingredients. I know I always have the fixings to make this right in my pantry and I'm willing to bet you do too....just go check!
You literally throw this in the pot and cook! It's a guaranteed family approved meal!
Okay this is where it gets fun! You can throw any veggies you want in here! Mix it up or keep it simple!
1 Lbs Elbow pasta (or any sort of short pasta)
1 28oz can of crushed tomatoes
2 Cups water
1 Lbs Ground beef
1 Green pepper
1 Glove garlic
1 Tbs Italian seasoning
salt/pepper to taste
Chives for presentation
How to Cook
Take a pot such as a dutch oven or a deep sauce pan and place on high heat and brown the meat.
Once the meat is about half done throw in the onions, green pepper and garlic and cook until the meat has finished browning, then throw in the seasoning.
Add in tomatoes, pasta, and water.
Turn the heat down to a simmer and cover the pasta for 20 minutes or until the pasta is done to your liking. Stir occasionally so the pasta doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot!
