Everyone loves Goulash.  I do not know a single person who's family doesn't have a dish similar to this.  They may call it by another name, but we all know it's pretty much the same.

    This macaroni or spaghettie dish, not goulash!! There aren’t any red belpeppers in it and it doesn’t need tomato’s. Some Hungarians add pieces of old bread to it, whatever they have on hand when they herd the sheeps.

      Thank you Marianne for your comment. This is my version of goulash, I’m certain that everyone’s version of this dish is done their own way and different then next persons. Although it may not be a true Hungarian goulash, it is my goulash. The stewed tomatoes that I used did have green bell peppers in them. Different recipes from different palates make the world a wonderful place. Once again, thank you for your input it is greatly received and appreciated.
