Your family will love this yummy dish and you’ll love the how easy it is to make.



6 oz gluten-free elbow macaroni, uncooked*
1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups ketchup, gluten-free
1  14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes, gluten-free
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


Prepare gluten-free elbow macaroni according to directions on the package (except that you want to stop it cooking a couple of minutes before fully cooked. The macaroni will finish cooking in the goulash) and drain.

In a large pot or dutch oven brown the ground beef, chopping as it browns. (If you have any excess grease spoon it out into a heat-proof cup and discard after it cools.)

Add the chopped onion to the browned ground beef and continue frying for a few minutes until the onion turns translucent.

Add the drained macaroni to the ground beef along with the ketchup, diced tomatoes, salt, and pepper.

Stir together and cook over medium heat until it begins to boil and then lower the heat to low and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.



To reheat leftovers you can microwave or heat on the stovetop in a pan with a little bit of water in the bottom of the pan. Heat over medium low heat and carefully stir. Gluten-free macaroni tends to break up a little when reheated so stir and reheat carefully.

*Once the elbow macaroni cooks you should have around 4 cups.
