1 lb macaroni
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 lbs combined ground pork, beef & veal
* you can also substitute ground turkey
1 tbsp paprika
Freshly ground pepper
2 carrots, shredded (about 1 cup)
1 onion, finely chopped
2 ribs celery, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 bay leaf
2 cups beef broth
1 15oz. can tomato sauce
cup sour cream
Generous handful flat leaf parsley


Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain, setting aside a ladle of pasta cooking water. While the pasta is working, in a large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil, 2 turns of the pan, over medium to high heat. Add the ground meat, paprika; season with salt & pepper. Cook until browned, stirring and crumbling meat with a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots, onion, celery, bell pepper and bay leaf and cook for 10 minutes. Add the broth and tomato sauce and heat through. Discard the bay leaf. Stir in the sour cream and parsley.

Toss the macaroni with the goulash and add the pasta cooking water (stir in a little at a time to thin out).
