This is our go-to meal when we are in a rush or just simply want something quick and tasty. It can be ready in a flash and will not only satisfy your hunger but make your taste buds say 'Ummmmmmm Yummmmmmmmmmm!'
We always have everything on hand to make this meal too, so I don't really have to shop special for making it. It goes together in a flash!

2 cups elbow noodles
1 lb ground beef
1 can diced tomatoes
1 small can tomato sauce
1-2 Tbsp spicy spaghetti seasoning (or Italian Seasoning)
2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped (optional)
Cheddar cheese, grated or in small cubes, as much as you like
Cook elbow noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in large skillet brown ground beef along with onion and garlic (I don't add these if I'm in a real hurry) until fully cooked and onions are tender. When meat is cooked, drain off excess grease and return to pan. Add cans of diced tomatoes and tomato sauce and spaghetti seasoning. Stir until mixed well, add cooked noodles and heat through.
Serve on top of diced cheese cubes, or sprinkle with grated cheese in between two scoops of goulash, this way your cheese is nice and melted.
I buy spicy spaghetti seasoning in a big bottle at Sam's club. I mostly use it for this dish (which we have often enough) but it's also a great seasoning for making your own spaghetti sauce.
We like to serve this with a side salad and garlic bread.
