Meatballs in Creamy Mushroom Sauce

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

I make this with my Kittencal's Italian Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meatballs but you can use your own favorite meatball for this ;-) this is great served up on cooked hot egg noodles, or cooked rice, prep time does not include making and cooking the meatballs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a skillet fry mushrooms in butter over medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until well browned (adding in the garlic the last few minutes of cooking) remove from skillet, set aside.
  2. In a bowl dissolve the cornstarch in a little of the half and half.
  3. Add the cornstarch mixture to the skillet with the remaining light cream; whisk and cook, until mixture comes to a boil,and has thickened.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients, meatballs and the mushrooms; return to a light boil, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle to with Parmesan cheese if desired, or pass the cheese at the table.

Yum-O! I made this in the slow cooker for a family dinner, to save on stove space. They were a hit! There were no leftovers, they barely made it to the table, everyone had to eat a few from the pot. Thanks as usual for a great recipe!

I made this with frozen meatballs from M & M's, used 1% milk instead of the half and half and used 3 tbsp. lemon juice as I didn't have any oranges. It was absolutely delicious. We had it served over mashed potatoes but I will serve the leftovers with rice. Either way it will be good.

This was very good. I used turkey meatballs and substituted the half and half with fat free evaporated milk (a matter of availability). Very rich and creamy - delish ! I served on whole wheat egg noodles.
