In a large saucepan with lid, heat the meatballs in the fra diavolo sauce over medium heat for 35-40 minutes* stirring occasionally. Using a second large saucepan heat olive oil over medium heat, add the onions and garlic and cook until translucent and soft for about 3-4 minutes. Pour in the vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low to simmer. Stirring constantly with a whisk, slowly pour in the polenta continuing to whisk and cook for 5 minutes.
