Default Goulash - how many calories? So confusing!

So, there's this dish that my mother makes that....well, it's *always* been my absolute favourite food. We always referred to it as goulash but it's a lot simpler than any goulash recipe I've ever seen online.

Anyway, I have NO idea how to calculate calories for it. None. I use SparkPeople to track my calorie intake, and there's countless entries for goulash, but I have no idea which one to use. Should I just estimate? I don't even know.

For reference, Mom's recipe contains extra-lean ground beef, elbow macaroni, tomato soup, and a tiny bit (maybe 1/4 cup) of fat-free barbecue sauce. Should I just add up the calories in all that stuff and figure it out that way?

GAH! Confused isn't the word.

Spark has a recipe calculator - CLICK HERE. Just enter your ingredients and info and it will give you the nutrition per serving, and then you can add that to your daily tracker. Easy peasy.

Novus, you're awesome! Thanks for pointing that out, it will make this sooo much easier.

ETA: I just inputted all the ingredients and came out with a calorie count that was only about 20 calories over what I had estimated. WOOOO!
