Baked Teriyaki Meatballs with Red Pepper

I had planned to have meatballs tonight and was amazed that hubby chose the same dinner.  He even offered to help make them.

I thought he would just form pure meat-meatballs but no, he wanted a recipe.  I lined up three choices and this is the one he selected and this is a good one.  My jobs were to cut the parsley and prepare the ginger.  He did most everything else even to freezing the extra meatballs.  I like cooking this way.
