New Recipe, Kind of

There are certain recipes, that aren't recipes at all. You know what I'm talking about. Those dishes that aren't created by following a strict blueprint, but instead either come together off the top of your head, or more so in my case dishes people before me have made for so long they don't even think about what they are doing, they just do. That is how this one came to me. Adam made a request long ago for me to make goulash like his late grandma used to. At the time she was still alive and I asked her what was in hers, and it sounded very similar to what my mom used to make. Well.....fast forward about 2 years later and I finally got around to asking my mom "hey, how did you make your goulash?" So from her explanation of "some of this, a little of that" I have come up w/ the following recipe for what I hope is close to what both of us remember from our childhood!

1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 (26oz) traditional spaghetti sauce
1 lb. elbow macaroni
Salt and Pepper to taste

Brown hamburger in skillet w/ chopped onion, seasoned w/ salt and pepper. Drain fat. Meanwhile, boil macaroni and drain well. Put macaroni back in pot. Add in hamburger mixture and sauce. Stir well and heat through.
