Gourmet 'Meatball' Sandwich

I was flicking through Jamie Oliver's 30 minute meals book the other day looking for something veggie for my boyfriend to cook me (he promised about 6 months ago!) and came across something very unveggie, but something I really wanted. Yes, the mighty meatball sandwich was calling my name and it became ingrained in my thoughts, until I finally made it this week. I still had some Redwood's gourmet meatballs left and decided it would have to have marinara sauce, cheese and jalapenos and to top it all off  it had to be contained in Tesco's salt and pepper baguette i.e BEST BREAD EVER! So here it is:

Serves 1:

3 meat free meatballs
Olive oil
1/2 a small onion chopped
1 small garlic clove crushed
1/2 tin tomatoes
A pinch of sugar and salt
a few handfuls of basil
1/4 salt and pepper baguette from Tesco
a few slices of emmental
some jalapenos (optional)

Start by cooking the meat balls according to the instructions on the pack (10 mins in the oven). While they're cooking make the sauce by softening the onions and garlic in a pan on a medium heat, then pop all the other ingredients in to a food processor (if you don't have you you can have it chunky) and leave to simmer and reduce. Remove the meatballs, chop in half and add to the sauce for a few minutes. Slice the baguette length ways, put the sauce and meatballs in and top with the cheese and jalapenos. Pop in to the oven for 5 minutes so the cheese is lovely and melty, plate up and enjoy!
