Just in case you haven’t figured it out by now, I love me some pasta. I decided to call this mixture “pasta goulash” because I took a mixture of some of everything that I had left in the fridge before it came time to go grocery shopping again, and made a meal out of it. The funny thing about it is that it actually came out pretty good, and I could taste the spices on each of the main ingredients separately. I hope that this recipe inspires you to make your own goulash of a meal. Enjoy! Have a blessed rest of your weekend.

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
