"This recipe relies on ingredients we always have on hand and doesn't dirty many dishes," reports Sheryl Ludeman of Kenosha, Wisconsin. "While the tender meatballs cook in the microwave, boil the noodles on the stovetop to get this saucy entree on the table in minutes," she suggests.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 16, 2014

Made this tonight with a few changes due to the fact I have had gastric bypass surgery and can't have a lot of fat in my diet, but I wanted flavor. I saw a few reviews used dry onion soup mix so i did that as well as used some Worcestershire sauce, Italian dressing, Parmesan cheese and omitted the onions. I cooked for 7 1/2 minutes but I should have checked after 5 they are a bit over done and tough. I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and added cardamom instead of nutmeg. I also did not add salt because of the salt in the two soups. I really like it and it is a change of pace from my boring soft food diet.

I loved it! So did my little dog. I gave her a meatball and she gobbled it up. I cooked them in the oven, like someone suggested in the reviews and added a dry onion soup mix to the sauce ingredients. It was a little too oniony, so next time I will only use half the package of dry onion soup. Then it should be perfect. And easy...so easy.

The recipe was very simple and I really had everything I needed without paying a visit to the market. I used ground Turkey and added a package of Lipton Beefy onion soup. It was delicious!!
