Kids love meatballs. Who am I kidding? We all love meatballs. Not sure why, but there's just something about them, especially the little ones. Naturally, where there are meatballs, there must be noodles, which also top the kid-friendly list.
I enlisted both of these allies to help sell the dijon mustard, cognac and mushrooms that comprise the rest of the dish. The end result is an easy, classic dish that appeals to the whole family; the meatball loving kiddos, and the adults who claim to love the sophistication of shiitake mushrooms, herbs and shallot — but really just love the meatballs.
