When I lived in Brussels, I ate Boulettes Sauce Tomate at least once a week - it is a traditional Belgian dish, well known for its hearty flavour and on the menu of nearly every café and restaurant there! However when cooking my own version at home, I prefer to cheat a little with this very easy recipe. It saves time and effort but still produces a yummy and healthy meal.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes

Handful of fresh basil and coriander leaves (optional)

Notes
I prefer using turkey meatballs, as they are lower in fat than other meat. However this recipe will work just as well with beef or pork meatballs, if you prefer.
A pasta sauce with vegetables in will add extra flavours and nutrition to the meal.

Method
Place pasta sauce and chopped tomatoes in a large pan. Mix well.
Add meatballs and ensure they are covered by the sauce.
