Swedish Meatballs with Shiitake Mushrooms

When you make this one-dish meal for a friend, we suggest delivering the cooked meatballs and sauce in a separate container from the noodles. Include instructions to reheat the meatballs and sauce in a medium saucepan over low heat for 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Noodles may be warmed in the microwave.


6 servings (serving size: 5 meatballs, about 1/2 cup mushroom mixture, and 1 cup pasta)

1 pound ground round
3/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 large egg white
Cooking spray
4 1/2 cups thinly sliced shiitake mushroom caps (about 8 ounces)
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced carrot
1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (10 1/2-ounce) can beef consommé
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
6 cups hot cooked yolk-free wide egg noodles (about 10 ounces uncooked pasta)


Combine the first 8 ingredients in a medium bowl. Shape mixture into 30 (1-inch) meatballs. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add meatballs; cook for 8 minutes, browning on all sides. Remove meatballs from pan.

Add mushrooms, carrot, and shallots to pan; sauté for 5 minutes. Stir in flour; cook 1 minute. Gradually add the consommé, stirring with a whisk; bring to a boil. Return meatballs to pan. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes. Add water; cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in the sour cream and parsley. Serve over pasta.
