(Meatballs may be refrigerated for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.) 
  • If using frozen cooked meatballs, thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Make the cream sauce: Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour, stock, and bay leaf. Simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes, whisking continuously so no lumps form. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Add meatballs; cook for 5 minutes. Add cream and continue to simmer; season to taste. Do not let mixture boil. Serve warm over pasta.
