This goulash is not only quick and easy to make, but it's also very satisfying. It can be made with any pasta sauce or spaghetti sauce. I make mine with Hunt's Garlic & Herb Spaghetti Sauce. I do add red pepper flakes, which gives this goulash a 'bit of a kick'. It's comfort food at it's best!

  6. When the macaroni is done cooking, drain it, then add it to the meat sauce, and finishing heating it through.
  7. Once heated through; sprinkle on a bit of dried parsley flakes.
  8. Serve immediately, and top with a bit of grated parmesan cheese.
