Directions

  1. Combine the ingredients for the meatballs in a large bowl. Shape turkey mixture into 1 inch balls.

  5. Pour the sauce into the skillet & cook over medium heat until it thickens, stir frequently.
  6. Once thickened, add in the pineapple, peppers, & meatballs. Continue to cook until hot. Serve over rice.
