Beef Goulash with Blue Cheese
Rich, funky blue cheese adds depth and creaminess to this already-packed dish. Using macaroni as the pasta is an especially nice move—all the more space for those cheesy, tomatoey meat chunks to nestle in for the perfect bite!

Mushroom Goulash with Pierogi
This dish plays with spices and sauces to gussy up goulash. The sweet sides of paprika, marjoram, and coriander combine with the savory side of Worcestershire for a dish that hits all the right flavor profiles. Starchy pierogi and a dash of hot pepper sauce only add to the balance.

Meat Goulash with Macaroni
What makes this dish different from others is the addition of bacon and roasted red pepper to the mix. The bacon gives it a bit more salty umami, and the red pepper brings in a hint of smoky sweetness.
