Meatballs and ribbon noodles are a quintessential Swedish dish. Moistened with evaporated milk and seasoned with dill, these tender and aromatic meatballs are the perfect partner for luscious noodles and gravy. This is great for both family gatherings or casual entertaining.

the meatballs were very tasty,when the gravy was made I added some sour cream to it and served it all over hot,cooked,drained noodles. My husband and two grandchildren really ate them up.

meatballs great

I'm not good at making gravy from scratch, so, I just made the meatballs. I used already prepared gravy and rice instead of noodles. Very good!
