Fast Fix Microwave Meatballs

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Michelle S.

I cannot remember where I found this recipe, but I am glad I did. Any cream soup can be used, but I prefer the Cheddar. It is very nice over buttered orzo.

This was very easy, and good. I made the meatballs less than 1" diameter, and cooked them for 16 minutes total. The sauce tasted a little bland, so I added 1/4 cup sweet chili dipping sauce, which is mildly spicy. Everyone in the family loved this dish, and I'll definitely be making it again and again.
