Goulash – The remainder meal!

Goulash – The remainder meal!

Sometimes we have a remainder meal. What is that you ask? Well it is a meal using the remaining ingredients of all of the other cooks. Throw the ingredients in a pot and serve. Goulash is my perfect remainder meal. For this meal we had a bunch of remainders lying around. We had 1/4 box of rigatoni and a 1/4 box of penne lying around from various pasta recipes. We had a couple of cloves of garlic left from the Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi post. Plus a can of tomatoes lying around from our various different spaghetti sauce concoctions. Throw it all together and you get goulash. This works with any pasta, any ground meat and whatever seasonings you have lying around. While my concoction has these exact ingredients, feel free to play around with it.
