Mushroom Sauce

  • 8 oz mini bella mushrooms sliced
  • 8 oz white mushrooms sliced
  • ½ small red onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup vegetable stock
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • In a large bowl, add all of the meatball ingredients and mix until well combined. Form meatballs about the size of a golf ball.
  • Over high heat, add the olive oil to a large saucepan. Once hot, brown the meatballs on each side, about 2 minutes each until the entire meatball is lightly browned. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Turn down the heat to medium and in the same pan, add the butter and sauté the red onion for about 1 minute. Next, add the garlic and sauté for an additional minute. Add the sliced mushrooms, salt and pepper (to taste) and continue to sauté for 2 minutes.
  • Add the vegetable broth to the pan and continue to cook for approximately 4-5 minutes until the stock begins to reduce. Next, add the heavy cream and parmesan cheese and reduce to a simmer. Return the meatballs to the sauce and simmer for approximately 15 minutes until the sauce begins to thicken.
