My mother in law made this a few weeks ago after getting the recipe from her co-worker.  I have memories of when my mom would make goulash growing up and enjoying it, and I really like this recipe.  You can easily half this for a smaller family.

2-3 lbs ground beef or turkey
1 large onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups water
2-15oz tomato sauce
2-14 1/2oz tomatoes, diced (I like the petite diced)
2 cans corn, drained (optional)
3 Tbsp soy sauce (use GF if needed)
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp basil
2 bay leaves
1 Tbsp salt or seasoned salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cups macaroni (use brown rice noodles for GF)

Brown ground meat, onion, and garlic.  Add everything else except the pasta.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occassionally for 20 minutes. Stir in pasta and cook for another 25 minutes uncovered.  Remove bay leaves.

OR crockpot version:
Brown ground meat, onion, and garlic and add to crockpot. Add everything else except the pasta. Turn on high 4-6 hours or low 8 hours.  Stir in pasta, turn crockpot on high, and cook last 20-30 minutes until pasta is tender.  Remove bay leaves.  Or you could leave out the 3 cups of water and just boil the pasta separately and add to the crockpot before serving.
