Holy moly! I made this meal for a get together, and it vanished in minutes



1 package (26 ounces) frozen meatballs, thawed

8 ounces wide egg noodles

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

¼ cup all-purpose flour

½ cup finely diced onion

1 cup thinly sliced button mushrooms

2 ½ cups beef broth

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

½ cup sour cream

½ cup heavy cream

Salt and pepper, to taste


Set the Stage:

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cook the egg noodles as per package directions, drain, and set aside.

Sauté the Vegetables:

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat, adding the onions and mushrooms, and sauté until they soften and adopt a light golden color.

Build the Roux:

Add flour to the vegetables, stirring and cooking for 1-2 minutes.

Create the Sauce:

Gradually introduce the beef broth, ensuring to continually stir to prevent lump formation. Add Worcestershire sauce, and stir until thickened. Subsequently, reduce the heat and incorporate sour cream and heavy cream. Season appropriately.

Meatball Mixture:

Add the meatballs to the sauce, ensuring they’re generously coated. Combine this with the cooked noodles.

Bake to Perfection:

Transfer to a baking dish, spreading evenly, and bake for 20-30 minutes, aiming for a heated-through dish with a slightly golden top.

Cool and Serve:

Allow it to slightly cool post-oven, and garnish with parsley or Parmesan if desired, before serving.
