This can be made in less than 30 minutes, start to finish
2 teaspoons olive oil
1.75 pound bag, frozen cooked meatballs (either 1/2" or 1" it's up to you)
4 Tablespoons butter
8 ounces fresh sliced mushrooms
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1/2 cup flour
4 cups chicken broth (1 32 oz. box of broth)
1 cup fat free half and half
1 teaspoons salt or to taste
Heat the olive oil over medium low heat in a non-stick pan. Add the frozen meatballs. Brown the meatballs on all sides by stirring or shaking the pan. This may take 7-8 minutes. Transfer the meatballs into a bowl and set aside. Return the pan to the burner. Melt the butter and add the sliced mushrooms and diced onion. Saute 2-3 minutes until softened. Turn off the burner and add the flour to the pan. Stir until the flour is completely combined with the onions and mushrooms. Add the chicken broth and the half and half. Turn the burner back on to medium-low and stir constantly until the flour is dissolved and the mixture starts to thicken. Add salt to taste. Return the meatballs to the sauce. Heat and serve over noodles.
Serves 6-8 and leftovers freeze well.
