Goulash, the name itself was always funny to me. Growing up it wasn't a favorite. But, as an adult I quite like it. It's a very simple dish it consists of tomatoes, hamburger, onions, and Macaroni noodles.
I got creative with this batch though. I had several garden tomatoes that were ready to be used. I placed them in the oven with a little olive oil and a few garlic cloves and roasted them at 300 for 2 hours. This brought out the natural flavor of the fresh tomatoes. Once out of the oven, I pulled off all the skins and mixed the tomatoes with cooked ground hamburger and onions. I seasoned to taste with salt, pepper, oregano, basil, thyme, sugar, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix with Macaroni and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. (Really, it's just spaghetti sauce.)
