Whether you're cooking for a large group or craving a comforting meal for two, this quick and easy one-pot swedish meatball pasta is sure to become a favorite. Loaded with Swedish-style meatballs, silky egg noodles, and a creamy sauce, you’ll have a crowd-pleasing dish ready to serve in just 30 minutes!


Units Scale
  • 1/2 lb wide egg noodles
  • 1 lb cooked swedish meatballs (about 16 to 20ish), frozen or thawed*
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled, and diced
  • 1 celery rib, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1/4 cup white wine or white wine vinegar
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup skim milk (I used 2%), warmed
  • Pinch of nutmeg (optional - about 1/8 of a teaspoon)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Roughly chopped parsley to garnish


  1. In a large skillet or braiser, heat olive oil and butter over medium high heat. Stir in onion, carrots, and celery and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the garlic, flour, and nutmeg if using. Cook for 1 minute, until flour begins to brown and garlic is fragrant.
  3. Pour in the white wine or white wine vinegar. Cook 1 minute, stirring frequently and scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan.
  4. Distribute egg noodles and meatballs evenly in the skillet. Pour broth and warmed milk over the mixture. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium low and cover with a lid. Cook until noodles are al dente, about 6 to 7 minutes.
  5. Remove lid and stir in the thawed peas. Cook 1 more minute, until warmed through.
  6. Remove from heat. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.


You can use homemade meatballs or store bought (the Ikea brand is my favorite), frozen or thawed. Doesn't matter as long as they're thoroughly cooked
