If you grew up in the 80s and 90s and had goulash for lunch at school, then this recipe will take you back to those days. While I certainly appreciated the nostalgia of this dish, my family did not. Even with some cheese sprinkled on top, this dish could not, and will not, win them over. For the kids, it was too bland, not enough flavor. For my husband, who did not grow up in the US, it was palatable, but he didn't go back for seconds.
I did not use the full box of elbow mac and it still seemed a bit on the "dry" side. If you make this, err on the side of less pasta. I made this as written and I agree that it's a good "base" to start from, but that's about it.
