Italian style tomato sauce:
Place your tinned tomatoes, garlic (1 clove) and fresh basil into a sauce pan and heat over a medium temperature. Once the sauce has reached boiling point, reduce heat, place a lid over the sauce pan and allow cooking for as long as possible (at least 30mins).

Meatball mix:
Place the minced meat, Jungle oats, soya sauce, onion flakes, minced garlic (1 clove) and beaten egg into a large mixing bowl and mix together well. You are looking for a consistency of moist but not sloppy. Roll your meatballs together and place onto a baking tray and bake for 30min at 180°C.

Cook according to packet instructions, which is usually 1 part polenta to 4 parts water for approximately 5-10min or until the polenta has thickened sufficiently.
