A tangy sauce, combined with green peppers and pineapple, transforms Darlene's make ahead meatballs OAMC into a delightful main dish severed over rice. This is a great 30 minute meal.

Very good. Used fresh pineapple all chopped up instead of canned and replaced cornstarch with flour b/c I didn't have any. Also added a little sambal olek (red chili sauce) for spice. Overall DELISH!-->Will definately make again.
