Meatball Directions:
1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2.)  Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and with well-greased hands, form into balls.
3.)  Place meatballs in a baking dish and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes.

For Sauce Directions:
1.)  In a mixing bowl, combine all sauce ingredients and whisk well.
2.)  Sautee veggies in a little olive oil over medium high heat.  When veggies are barely tender, pour in sauce mixture and pineapple chunks and bring to a boil.  When sauce thickens to preferred consistency, remove from heat and stir in cooked meatballs and a few dashes of red pepper flakes.  Serve over brown rice.
