Ingredients:

1 pound ground beef

½ cup seasoned bread crumbs

½ finely minced onion

1 egg

½ tablespoon salt (for meatballs)

½ tablespoon pepper (for meatballs)

2 tablespoons canola oil

2 cups beef broth

2 cups milk

½ tablespoon salt (for sauce)

½ tablespoon pepper (for sauce)

1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

4 cups egg noodles

1 cup shredded parmesan cheese

½ cup chopped parsley

How to make it:

1. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, onion, egg, salt, and pepper, mixing until evenly combined. Heat the canola oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Take the meatball mixture, about the size of a golf ball, and roll it into balls. Place the meatballs into the pot, cooking for one minute. Flip the meatballs.

2. Add the beef broth, milk, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce and give it a stir. Bring the liquid to a boil, then add the egg noodles. Stir constantly until the pasta is cooked and the liquid has reduced to a sauce that coats the noodles, about seven to eight minutes. Add the parmesan and the parsley, stirring until the cheese is melted. Serve!
