Wow, what a great & simple recipe! I doubled the recipe and added one can of campbell's french onion soup and about 1 Tablespoon of worcestershire sauce. Just before serving I added 3 Tablespoons of flour mixed in 1/2 cup of water to thicken. So easy to make and my family LOVED it.

This was so easy and quick. I did add some cream cheese and dill to the recipe (didn't have enough soup on hand), and a little worcestershire because I like it. Very good recipe. Thanks for posting it. We will use this one from now on.

I really enjoyed this recipe, it was so easy to make, and my family went nuts over it. Even my three year old couldn't get enough of those meatballs. I added a can of mushrooms, and a sliced onion to it, and tried it on toast, and it was great that way too. I thank you for posting this recipe, I hope more people will try this simple, yet richly delicious recipe. sincerely, Kathleen Hurst

I was skeptical about this recipe at first. I didn't read the recipe correctly before I decided to make it so, I didn't have enough cream of mushroom soup as the recipe called for so I substituted cream of celery soup for some of it. I also added a dash of worcestershire sauce since I thought it might need a little help flavorwise. I used homemade frozen meatballs. This was very good and very easy. My picky 2 year old loved the noodles with the gravy this made. Will definitely make this again. Doesn't need much help in the flavor dept like I thought it might but, it might be fun to tinker with it a bit and try out some different soup combinations with it.

I was looking for a recipe to try to make Clarence's Swedish Meatballs. He was a wonderful man who made soups and other yummy things for the Catholic Worker in Tacoma. This looked the closest to what he made. I added potatoes and super-sized this recipe and people really liked it.

This was really good for a quick dinner. I used a 26oz can of soup so I had to adjust to that and we used homemade meatballs I had frozen. I also added a little garlic powder. Great recipe..thx!

Perfect recipe for when you don't have a lot of time to spend cooking, and want something hot and filling on the table. I followed the recipe as written, but thought it was a little bland. Some black pepper, a sprinkle of crushed red pepper, and a bit of salt really helped make this dish come to life. I chopped up some fresh parsley for garnish. I would definitely make this again! Thanks for sharing!
