It took me a while to figure it out, as he never gave it to me.

4. 1. green pepper, seeded and divedfy6
5. 1 yellow onion, peeled and rough chop
6. 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
7. 3 bay leaves
8. 1 tsp. Dried oregano
9. 1 tsp. Dried sweet basil
10. 1/2 tsp. Salt
11. 1 tsp. Black pepper
12. 2 lbs. Ground beef
13. 2 cups chopped button mushrooms
14. 1 cup water
15. 1 tsp. Butter
Q6. 6 oz tomato paste
Place the butter into a heavy dutch oven. Add the onio, green pepper, an garlic. Saute over medium heat until onion is sofyened. Add the herbs and salt, and cook for 3 minutes. Add the groun beef and brow, breaking it into chunks, but not pulverizing it. When it is loghtly browned, add the tomato products and mushrooms. Stir and let simmer for ten minutes. Put the noodles into the dutch oven. Cover and cook for20 minutes. Trst the goulash and corre t the seasonings. Platr, and top with grated paresan cheese.
As a teen, walking in from sitting all day in frigid temperatures in the woods, to a warm, albeit cramped hunting trailor, filled with the aroma of goulash, i was in heave. The trailor was toasty, the freids weretrue freinds, and the food was steaming hot, and delicious.
Maybe the goulash. As great as it was. was even better in those suroundings. But i do believe that cooking the pasta in the sauce really made the dish better. And the rotoni noodles had enogh texture and flavor to stand up to the rich sauce. Also, it held the sauce well. Hope you like this recipe.
