Preparation steps

1.
To make the sauce, heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the onion until translucent.
2.
Add the garlic, cook for one minute then add the bay leaf, tomatoes and tomato paste. Stir in half a cup of water and let simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat.
3.
Meanwhile, make the meatballs: Squeeze the excess liquid out of the bread and mix with the other meatball ingredients. Season with salt and pepper and shape into balls.
4.
Heat 2 tbsp oil in a skillet and fry the meatballs for about 10 minutes, shaking the skillet so they cook on all sides. Add more oil as necessary.
5.
Remove the bay leaf from the sauce and discard. Spoon a little sauce into paper cases and top with a meatball. Serve garnished with raw chopped garlic if required.
