  5. Add onions, bell peppers and pineapple. Cook until onions start to soften.
  6. Pour sweet and sour sauce over veggies and gently stir to coat.
  7. Bring to a simmer, cover pan and turn heat to medium-low cook for 15 minutes or until sauce is thickened and meatballs are thoroughly cooked.
  8. Garnish with sliced green onions and serve with rice.
