9

Directions
1.
Bake meatballs as directed on package, or make and bake two batches of Easy Meatballs. Set aside. In small saucepan, cook baby carrots in water to cover until barely tender. Drain and set aside.

In heavy saucepan, saute onion and garlic in oil until tender. Add mushrooms and cook and stir 3 minutes. Stir in canned soup, milk, nutmeg, marjoram, and onion salt. Gently stir in cooked meatballs, thawed peas, and cooked carrots. Pour into 3 qt. casserole dish.
3.
Prepared mashed potatoes as directed on package, adding Parmesan cheese. Spoon dollops around the edge of the casserole. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-35 minutes, until potatoes are browned and casserole is bubbly.
4.
To freeze ahead, leave meatballs frozen or bake and cool homemade meatballs. Do not precook carrots. Saute onion and garlic in oil, add mushrooms and cook, then stir in canned soup, milk, nutmeg, marjoram, and onion salt. Chill this mixture in refrigerator, then stir in frozen meatballs, carrots, and frozen peas. Place in casserole dish, wrap well, label, and freeze up to 3 months. Store mashed potatoes in refrigerator and Parmesan cheese in fridge.
5.
To thaw and reheat, thaw casserole overnight in refrigerator. Bake, covered, at 400 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until casserole bubbles around edges. Uncover casserole, then combine potatoes and Parmesan cheese and spoon around edge of casserole. Bake for 15-20 minutes longer until potatoes are browned and casserole is bubbly.
