1.5 pounds of pre-cooked frozen meatballs
2 cups shell pasta
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 cups beef broth
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Generously grease a 9×13 baking dish and position it conveniently.
Cook the pasta to al dente perfection as per the package instructions. Drain and nestle the pasta in the prepared baking dish.
Strategically place the frozen meatballs atop the pasta.
In a substantial skillet, gracefully melt butter over medium flame.
Integrate flour, allowing it to cook for 2 minutes before infusing the mixture with beef broth, water, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Allow it to simmer into a thickened state, which should take approximately 10 minutes. Introduce parsley and heavy cream, stirring harmoniously.
Lavishly cascade the sauce over the meatballs and pasta.
Allow it to bake for a cozy 30 minutes.
