Love Bakes Good Cakes One Pot Goulash

Recipe adapted from Love Bakes Good Cakes
When I saw this recipe it brought back childhood memories. I'm not even sure where the memories come from but they seem fond.  This wasn't something we cooked for my family, I must have had dinner over a friends house and this was probably what they served. The one thing I do remember is that I loved it!
This will go in my GO TO Recipe binder, my boys loved it.  My older son said it was one of my better pasta recipes.  I messed up on the recipe a little.  I was so mad at myself because it should have been an one pot dish and I used three, I thought the recipe said CROCK POT Goulash. 

Yield: 6 servings
2 lb. ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, minced
3 cups water
1 can (29 oz.) tomato sauce
1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1-2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 beef bouillon cube
Salt and pepper, to taste
 2½ cups uncooked elbow macaroni
In a 5 qt. pan, cook and crumble beef over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Add the onion, green pepper and mushrooms. Cook until tender, about 3-5 minutes. Drain if desired. Add beef mixture back to the pot and add garlic, water, tomato sauce, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, paprika, sugar, crushed red pepper flakes, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Add the elbow macaroni and stir well. Return lid and continue to simmer for 15 minutes or until the noodles are done. Allow to sit covered for 5-10 minutes and mix well before serving. http://www.lovebakesgoodcakes.com/2012/11/one-pot-goulash.html
