Sweet 'N Tangy Meatballs

Pineapple chunks and grape jelly turn meatballs and Ragu into a tasty new dish that the whole family will love.


  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, cut into chunks
  • 1 small red bell pepper
  • 1 jar (1 lb. 8 oz.) Ragu® Sauce
  • 1 can (240 mL.) pineapple chunks in 100% juice, drained (reserve 1 Tbsp. juice)
  • 1 jar (350 mL) grape jelly
  • 1 package (20 oz.) frozen fully-cooked cocktail-size meatballs, thawed


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook onion and red pepper, stirring occasionally, 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove vegetables and set aside.
  2. Stir Sauce, reserved pineapple juice, jelly and meatballs into same skillet. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until meatballs are done and sauce is thickened. Return vegetables to skillet. Stir in pineapple and heat through. Serve, if desired, over hot cooked rice.
  • TIP: Having a party? Make kabobs by alternately threading red pepper, onion, pineapple and meatball onto long toothpicks. Voilà! …instant appetizer! The meatballs can be made up to 1 day ahead. Refrigerate covered; heat through before making kabobs.
