Crock pot goulash
This is an old stand-by of mine. My mother and grandmother used to make it often, though I think it was a little different. You can also make it on a stove-top just as easily.
2 cups ground beef
1 can diced tomatoes
2 cups egg noodles or 1.5 cups elbow macaroni
1 small onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups water or vegetable stock (tastes better)
Sea salt and pepper to taste
If you want it to taste extra delicious, fry the ground beef with the onions and garlic on the stove top(add a little oil to keep from sticking), then add to a pot with the stock and tomatoes. You could also just put everything in the crock pot and let it sit for a few hours on low.
Add the pasta about ten minutes before you want to serve it. It probably goes without saying, but bring the soup to a boil before adding the pasta, then let simmer for about ten minutes- or until the pasta is cooked. Add salt and pepper.
