Step 1

Using a food processor fitted with a metal blade, process the mushrooms until very finely chopped.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped mushrooms with ground beef, and all other ingredients that you use to make your favorite meatballs, Using your hands, shape the mixture into 1-inch meatballs.


Step 3

In a large heavy-bottomed skillet set over medium-high, cook the bacon in olive oil until browned and crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate, leaving the fat in the pan.

Step 4

Add the meatballs to the hot pan, and cook for 3-5 minutes or until well browned all over. (They are quite fragile at this stage, so be gentle when turning them over!) Transfer the meatballs the same plate as the bacon.

Step 5

Add the onion to the pan and saute for 5-6 minutes, or until soft and lightly golden. Add 1 cup sliced mushrooms and garlic and saute for 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms start to soften. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

Step 6

Whisk in the broth, and bring the sauce to a simmer. Stir in the dry noodles, along with bacon and meatballs, and reduce the heat to medium. Cover and let simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until the noodles are soft and the meatballs are cooked all the way through.

Step 7

Remove from heat, and stir in the sour cream and parsley. Serve immediately.

This made for a very enjoyable meal. I did omit onion for dietary reasons and felt that the pasta would not cook in the sauce so I cooked it in boiling water and once cooked transferred to the frying pan with the meatballs and sauce, thank you ma Donna made for Alphabet Tag Game at FF&F.
