Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs

This is a great little dinner that even the kids will like.  If you make your meatballs first, they can be baking in the oven while you make the sauce, saving lots of time.  The meatballs have some zucchini hidden inside for more veggies and moistness.  To make this dish even more healthy, serve over some brown rice or quinoa.

For the sauce:
1/4 large onion,sliced
1 medium green pepper, sliced
1 medium red pepper, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 can tomato sauce
1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Pit olive oil and all the vegetables in a large deep fry pan.  Cook for about 5-7 minutes.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes.  Add in cooked meatballs.

For the meatballs:  Combine
1  egg
1 c. breadcrumbs
1/2 cup shredded zucchini
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 pound lean ground turkey
Form into 2 inch meatballs.  Place on a cooky sheet that has been covered with parchment paper.  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.
