Making the Meatball and Mushroom Pasta:
- Making the meatballs are pretty simple. All you have to do is add all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix well with your hands. Once you form your meatballs, place them in the oven for 15 minutes and they are ready to roll.
- The cheese sauce bridges all ingredients in the pasta dish together. Be sure to cook all cheese sauce ingredients on medium to low heat and continue to stir everything together until smooth. This sauce is what gives this dish its creaminess.
- Combine everything into a casserole dish and bake for 10 minutes.
When you are preparing for the family gathering or for your friends to come over for dinner give them a taste of this Meatball and Mushroom Pasta and they will all be very satisfied.
