Turkey Paprika and Macaroni Goulash

This is one of those dishes that’s good the ENTIRE cooking process and you keep adding ingredients thinking it can’t get better and it DOES!

I can’t believe how much food this ended up making too… I will cut the recipe in half to list below, but it was very easy to make 2Lbs+1.5Lbs of meat… deLISH!

I (of course) altered the recipe and ended up putting it in the oven with cheese on top and baking it, then I broiled for about 8 mins to get a nice crispy golden crust on top…. I’m literally salivating over here…



  • 1 LB elbow Macaroni
  • 1 LB ground lean turkey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 TBsp butter
  • 1 med onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 TBsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried marjoram (you can use dried basil as a substitute)
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup sour cream
  1. Bring a pot of water to boil and cook pasta al dente.
  2. In the meantime, cook meat in an oiled and buttered pan, salt-n-pep as needed. Break up meat and crumble.
  3. When meat is almost cooked, add onions, garlic, pepper and seasonings. Continue to cook until onions and peppers get soft, approx 8mins
  4. Add chicken stock and sour cream, bring to a bubble then reduce heat to low.
  5. Toss with pasta and let pasta absorb some of the juice.
  6. Pour into a casserole dish and top with melted cheese. Bake 350F for 20mins, last 5-10 mins put oven to broil to crisp it up (MAKE SURE TO WATCH IT!)
  7. Bon Appétit!
