mushrooms in cheesy tomato sauce


Strictly spoken, this tomato sauce is not Aurora sauce because I didn't go through béchamel sauce, but it does have all the same ingredients—tomatoes, milk with cheese and optional flour to thicken— so that is close enough to my liking:.

See also: aurora sauce and meatballs in aurora sauce served over pasta. Those are the same meal, looked at from different ingredients.


This is what you need for 4-6 servings:

  • 20 small meatballs
    store-bought, no ingredient list

up to 4 cups Aurora Sauce

  • 2 cups béchamel sauce
  • 1 small can tomato paste
    or 2 tbsp. powdered tomatoes
    or 1 lb. plum tomatoes
