I realized I didn't have spaghetti sauce one night after I had already thawed the meatballs for dinner and had to come up with something quick. I'd never made sweet and sour sauce before but decided to "wing it" and see what happened. This was fast, easy, and turned out surprisingly wonderful! Now we make it on purpose all the time!

Use over meatballs, chicken, pork, rice, noodles... you name it. It's incredibly easy!
