Dressed-Up Meatballs Recipe

Publisher Photo
Frozen meatballs and a jar of sweet-and-sour sauce make this microwave meal a last-minute lifesaver when racing against the clock. The flavorful sauce is dressed up with a hint of garlic and nicely coats the colorful mixture of meatballs, carrots, green pepper and onion. -Ivy Eresmas, Dade City, Florida
