Pairs Well With
This reminds me of when we lived in Minnesota and my mother would make Swedish meatballs all of the time. This recipe is good served over whole wheat noodles. It is a bit bland. The next time I would spice it up just a little bit...maybe a little bit more pepper in the sauce and meat mixture. I also used fresh sliced mushrooms.
