°2 tablespoons ketchup
°Tomato juice as needed
*How to make old fashioned goulash

Cook pasta until done as directed on package. While cooking, brown ground beef and onions together in a very large skillet or Dutch oven.

Strain and season with spices as desired. In a large bowl, mash the tomatoes with the potato masher and add to the beef with ketchup. Drain the pasta and add to the meat mixture, stirring well. Taste & adding additional seasoning as need.

I didn't need to add any tomato juice to my tomato juice, but if you like your juice a lot you can add as much tomato juice as you like. Phyllis adds it to her leftovers, which I also recommend, since pasta tends to absorb all the juice over time.

Enjoy !
