Grandma Vs Goloush | What's Cooking

This post has actually been saved in my drafts for two years. I am not really sure why I debated so about posting it. But I finally broke down.
Comfort foods . . .
they bring back memories, can make a gloomy day sunny, and are just darn good.
My paternal grandma used to make this easy dish during the depression for her family of 9 kids, the recipe was passed on to all the kids and there kids, etc.
It is one of the easiest meals to make. 

I have changed two of the ingredients, the pasta and the diced tomatoes.
The first time DH had this he feel in love and will ask for it at least twice a month.



  • 2 lbs ground beef or turkey
  • 1 box twist pasta
  • 1 15oz can fire roasted diced tomatoes



  1. 1. brown ground beef, (adding whatever spices you like) - I use garlic, diced onions, salt pepper and sometimes Italian seasoning. Once meat is done, drain and set aside.
  2. 2. Cook pasta according to directions on box, drain well, pour pasta back in pasta pot.
  3. 3. add meat and diced tomatoes to pasta and stir thoroughly, place on stove on medium and cook until warm.
  4. Serve with your favorite veggie or a tossed salad and bread of choice.
