In large bowl, mix beef, bread crumbs, onion, 2 tablespoons of the parsley and spices.
Add ½ cup of milk, Worcestershire sauce and egg.
Shape mixture into meatballs. In a large pot, melt butter and olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add meatballs; brown gently on all sides.
Add stock, remainder of milk and cream and bring to a boil.
Add in noodles; return to boil.
Reduce heat; simmer 15 to 18 minutes, stirring occasionally, until meatballs and pasta are thoroughly cooked. Stir in parmesan cheese until melted.
Garnish with parsley and extra parmesan cheese.
