Swedish Meatballs with Pasta

I was looking for something quick for dinner and I came across our giant bag of meatballs from…you guesses it…Costco. What to do? I didn’t want a tomato sauce for a change and I didn’t want to make a sauce from scratch. I wondered about that can of Campbell s mushroom soup? The result of my search was this quick recipe (ONLY if you use frozen meatballs…LOL)

Swedish Meatballs with Pasta

The Meatballs… (oh, just go buy some!)

1 pound ground beef or ground turkey

1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 dash Worcestershire sauce

1 egg, beaten

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

The Sauce

1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Mushroom Soup (regular or golden)

2/3 cup (1/2 soup can) water

2/3 cup (1/2 soup can) milk

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 green onion, chopped (about 2 tablespoons) or 2 teaspoons dried chives

1 teaspoon jarred minced garlic

Pasta of your choice! IF you insist…

Thoroughly mix the ground beef, bread crumbs, onion powder, dash Worcestershire and egg in a large bowl and shape the mixture into small meatballs. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook until they’re well browned. (OR nuke the frozen meatballs a few minutes) Pour off any fat.

Stir the soup, water, milk, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire, green onion, garlic and artificial sweetener in a medium bowl. Add the soup mixture to the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the meatballs are cooked through and the soup mixture thickens.

Pour over pasta…
