Before we get started, you need to know that I know my version of goulash is not the traditional version. I do not like soup and while I love stew, this is not a stew. It’s a marinara pasta dish that we’ve always called goulash.

So, now you know.



  1. 2 mild Italian sausage links
  2. 1 jar of marinara sauce
  3. 1/2 can of black olives, sliced
  4. 1 jar of marinaded artichoke hearts
  5. 1 bag of frozen stir fry vegetables (asparagus, carrots, onions, squash)
  6. 2/3 box of penne pasta
  7. Parmesan cheese (to taste)
  8. Garlic powder (to taste)


  1. Cook penne pasta in separate pan, drain and set aside
  2. Take sausages out of their casings
  3. In a large sauce pan, break meat apart and brown
  4. Add frozen stir fry vegetables
  5. Drain some of the excess moisture
  6. Add marinara sauce, black olives; stir
  7. Add pasta; stir
  8. Add artichoke hearts; stir
  9. Sprinkle parmesan cheese and garlic powder and stir in
  10. Serve with more parmesan cheese
