Goulash is a favorite in my family. It's made with pasta (usually something simple like macaroni) and tomatoes. Often we include add-ins such as ground beef, corn, and/or olives. Today for lunch I was in the mood for some tomatoey goodness, but didn't want to do the normal goulash. So instead of reaching for the elbow mac, I chose instead to grab a couple packages of ramen noodles, and a new version of goulash was born.
2 packages ramen noodles (I used 1 chicken flavored, and 1 beef flavored)
1 can diced tomatoes, no salt added, undrained
Several slices of lunch meat, sliced long and thin (or whatever other add-ins you want; this is what was in the fridge at the moment)
Break up noodles and cook according to package directions. Drain. Add tomatoes to pan, and the spice packets from the ramen. Stir, then add the lunch meat and the drained noodles. Heat through and serve.
