For the sauce:

• 3 garlic cloves, crushed • 4 tbs extra virgin olive oil • 800 g diced, peeled tomatoes • a pinch of salt • 6 basil leaves

Using your hands, mix all the ingredients together until you obtain a smooth mixture. Form rissoles about the size of an egg and flour them. In a deep frypan, fry a few meat balls at a time in the hot oil turning them in the oil. Drain them on kitchen paper.

Sautè the garlic in a saucepan. Add the tomatoes and salt and cook for 10 minutes. Then add the meat balls and basil leaves. Cook for another 5 minutes and serve, garnishing with extra basil leaves.
