Bowtie Pasta with Palmetto Cheese Meatballs and Portabella Mushrooms with a PC Cream Sauce

1 lb Bowtie Pasta (any pasta can be substituted)
1 recipe of Palmetto Meatballs (recipe below)
3 large Portabello mushrooms, sliced
3 Tbsp butter or oil
1/4 cup flour
4 cups Milk
6 oz. Palmetto Cheese
Chopped herbs - parsley, basil or cilantro


Make 1 recipe of Palmetto Meatballs. While the meatballs are cooking, boil 1 gallon of water and cook your pasta as directed.

In a saucepan, melt butter and stir in flour. Cook flour and butter on medium heat for 2 minutes. Stir in milk and continue to cook on medium heat. Cook until mixture has thickened slightly. Stir occasionally to prevent the milk from scorching on the bottom of the pan. Once the sauce has thickened whisk in 6 ounces (1/2 tub) of Palmetto Cheese. Simmer on low heat for an additional 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
In a small saute pan heat 1 tbsp of oil or butter. Add in your sliced mushrooms and cook for approximately 5 minutes or until mushrooms are thoroughly cooked.
To serve: On a plate or bowl add bowtie pasta. Top with mushrooms and meatballs. Ladle Palmetto Cheese cream sauce over top of the pasta. Garnish with chopped herbs of your choice. As an alternative, you can also combine all components into a 9x13 baking dish and serve.

Palmetto Meatballs

1-1/4 pound Ground Turkey or Beef
6oz. Palmetto Cheese, Original or Jalapeno
1-1/4 cups Instant Oats
1 egg
1 Tbsp. Italian seasonings
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp pepper

In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients. Mix well. The size of the meatball depends upon you. You can make heaping teaspoon size or a larger half cup entree size. Bake at 400 degrees until meatballs have cooked through. Cooking time will depend upon how large you make your meatballs. Make sure to take one out and cut in half to test for doneness. Smaller meatballs should take about 10-15 minutes to cook, while larger should take around 20-30 minutes.
