Ingredients

  • Frozen Italian style meatballs (1/2 oz each)

  • generally, enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Depends on who is home.

  • Extra virgin olive oil

  • 1

    + Tbsp - just enough to brown up the meatballs.

  • 2

    cups beef broth

  • use more for more meatballs... just go with this recipe. Don't over think it.

  • Seasoning

  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste

  • dried herbs (probably at least 1 - 1 1/2 tsp each) - parsley, oregano, basil

  • it will look like a lot of seasoning, but in the end, it will be great!

  • 2/3 - 1

    cup sour cream

  • 1

    cup heavy whipping cream

  • Wide egg noodles

  • enough for whoever is there.

Directions

I start off with our favorite brand of frozen Italian style meatballs (my kids LOVE the Rosina brand). I brown them in a little olive oil in a black iron skillet. This is where you get all the good flavors - from the fond (the brown bits that stick on the bottom) that gets stuck in the skillet. [I don't think this would work as well in a non-stick skillet b/c it releases too much of that goodness.] After they are browned up nicely, deglaze the pan with about 2 cups of beef broth (I like Swanson's brand). Bring to a boil. Season generously with salt and pepper, dried herbs (parsley, oregano, basil). When it starts reducing, add about 2/3 cup sour cream (I use Daisy light) and about a cup of heavy whipping cream. These will make the sauce creamy and silky and also act as a thickener. Meanwhile, boil water in a separate pot and add the wide egg noodles (I use No Yolks). Boil until they are still just a bit al dente, drain briefly and add to the simmering sauce. They will finish cooking in the sauce and also soak up a lot of that goodness. The result is a nice, creamy sauce - slightly tangy from the sour cream, a little herbaceous from the nice green herbs, a little beefy from the stock.
