Meatballs Stuffed With Pineapple Chunks

Norma DeRemer


I was looking through my neighbors microwave cookbook several weeks ago and found this recipe. It looked so good. I usually don't use the microwave for cooking.I mostly use it for heating up things or popcorn. I placed these in my oven at 350 for about 10 minutes or until they looked done. Drained the juices off and added the sauce to them after heating the ingredients in a sauce pan. Turn out great and we all loved them served on a bed of rice or just by themselves. Either way they were all gone.
