  3. Bake in oven 40 min, or until browned lightly..While they are baking; you will have time to make the sauce: Cut up your onion and green peppers, and place in a medium size sauce pan with the other sauce ingredients stir well.. Place on burner at med. level.. bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until pepper and onion are no longer crisp..remove from heat.
  4. Take your crockpot out, and when the meatballs are done, spoon them into the crockpot and pour the sauce over them.. put on low about 2 hours, then turn to warm until ready to serve.. serve with rice or noodles.. and a salad.. Enjoy
