    I don't use a cookbook often and do like to play. I made this a few days ago and I liked it. Ground
    beef, Mushroom soup, Sour Cream with seasoning. Ratios to your taste. I used about a pound of beef,
    1 can soup, and half a cup of sour cream.

    The Romanoff part: Chopped onion into skillet with hot oil until clear. Added garlic(-powdered was
    handy ... half a tblsp) Added ground beef(extra lean). Black pepper and salt. Sauted till very dark.
    Off heat to stir in about a quarter cup of flour. Added can of mushroom soup. Stirred in. Added sour
    cream to taste. Finally, added a tsp+ of dried sweet basil flakes. Brought to near boil to thicken
    then turned down to simmer.

    Rigatoni part: Rigatoni and water added to microwave-safe pot at a ratio of 1 to 1.5. Cooked in
    microwave at high until water absobed...about 13-15 minutes per cup. Stirred in some butter.

    Served with pasta on plate covered by romanoff sauce. Accompanied by sun-dried tomato loaf of bread.

    Left over pasta and sauce were put together in the pasta pot and stored in fridge for two
    more meals.

    This is simply preposterous! Romanoff doesn't enter the equation at all! This is the classic,
    venerable Rigatoni Stroganoff recipe, also known as Goulash all'Alfredo. Nothing to do with
    Romanoff, which is a salad recipe invented in Tijuana, Mexico!

    LOL!

    Thanks for the chuckle. Do a google for "Noodles Romanoff" as I did for "Goulash all'Alfredo"

    I love goulash and I do like the idea of using steak strips or sausage instead of hamburger and
    adding green pepper. I don't think I'd like to add the sauerkraut though.
