Do you need an easy dinner recipe for those busy nights? Dinner is the most important part of the day. Sitting down together as a family to enjoy a well prepared meal is so important. Unfortunately, it can also be the most stressful part of the day when you’re the cook. The key to a stress-free dinner hour is advance planning and organization along with an arsenal of quick and easy dinner recipe and menu ideas. This Meatball Stroganoff recipe has what it takes to get you to the table. It is easy and quick to prepare – less than half an hour from start to finish.
Buying frozen meatballs cuts the preparation time greatly. You have only to brown the meatballs and make the sauce. Simmer for 10 minutes and dinner is done. Serve over buttered noodles or hot fluffy rice with a green vegetable. I hope you will try this quick and easy dinner recipe soon.
Be sure to start the water for the noodles or the rice before you begin to brown the meatballs, as the noodles take almost as long to cook as the stroganoff and the rice takes longer.
