1 lb ground lamb

3 Tablespoons Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon black pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

2 leeks (chopped)

1 celery stalk (chopped)

1/2 red bell pepper (chopped)

1 large shallot (chopped)

1 small yellow squash (chopped)

2 cloves garlic (chopped)

2 c dried macaroni

1 can beef broth

1 can petite diced tomatoes

1 can crushed tomatoes

5 basil leaves (sliced – chiffoned, but that sounds too fancy)

1 bunch Italian parsley (chopped)

1 Tablespoon dried basil

Dash cumin

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon Worcestershire

Add lamb, half the Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and paprika to a pot and brown meat until almost all pink is gone. Drain excess fat.

Add leeks, celery, bell pepper, shallot, squash and garlic while continuing to brown meat – stir regularly.

When vegetables start to become soft, add half the beef broth. Cover and let simmer for a few minutes.

While simmering, boil macaroni in another pot until half-way al dente.

Drain macaroni, uncover goulash, add all remaining ingredients and cook for 15 – 20 minutes on low heat.

Add salt to taste.
