"A delicious creamy mushroom sauce and meatballs served over cooked noodles, this is comfort food at it's best! I recommend only low sodium condensed mushroom soup and beef broth, 1/2 pound fresh sliced sauteed mushrooms may be replaced for canned, you may omit the garlic powder and saute 3 minced garlic cloves with the fresh mushrooms if desired, to save time the meatballs may be cooked a day ahead or well in advance, also he meatballs may be cooked/browned in the skillet instead of oven baking, remove to a plate while making the sauce then return to the skillet to finish cooking with the sauce, make certain you scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan for extra flavor"
