An easy way to fancy-up those store bought frozen meatballs. Perfect for those busy weeknights when you just want to get dinner on the table. One pot and no-fuss pasta!

Yields6 Servings
Prep Time5 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time20 mins


Ingredients
 40 IKEA Swedish Meatballs (about 2/3 of the bag)
 2 tbsp olive oil
 6 cloves of garlic (minced)
 2 tsp beef base (i.e. Better Than Bouillon Roasted Beef Base)
 4 cups water
 16 oz pasta
 2 cups half and half
 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
 1 tsp dijon mustard
 salt & pepper to taste
 ½ cup flat-leaf parsley (minced)
 parmesan cheese (shredded - optional)

Directions
1

Heat the oil in a pan and saute the garlic until fragrant. Careful not to burn!

2

Skip to this step if your meatballs are already defrosted. Heat up the meatballs in the pan until warm, then remove and keep in a separate bowl until later.

3

Add in the beef base and water. Once the water is boiling and beef base has dissolved, add in the pasta. Cook pasta for 5 minutes on medium heat. Stir often, as the liquid doesn't completely cover the pasta and you want everything to cook evenly. Stir more often if pot is prone to sticking.

4

Add in the half and half, Worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard, and parsley (reserve some parsley for garnish!). Stir and combine well. Salt and pepper to taste.

5

Then add in the meatballs and cook until pasta is al dente and meatballs are warmed through. Top with parmesan cheese and remaining parsley and serve immediately.
