Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Add the spaghetti and cook according to the packet’s instructions. When the pasta is cooked, sieve the water and rinse in cold water to stop the pasta from cooking further. Drain well. In a bowl place the mince and mix well together. Add the eggs, fresh pepper and parsley and combine well together with the mince. Press the mince mixture to form small round patties. In a plate, sprinkle some semolina and roll the patties through the semolina to finely cover each ball. Fill a small saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Place the meatballs in the boiling water and cook for around 20 minutes. Retrieve the patties out of the water with a skimmer so that they do not break. While the meatballs are cooking, heat the Mayor Tadam ghaz-Zalza, on low heat, in a frying pan. Add the meatballs to the sauce and cook for a further 30 minutes. Serve hot over the spaghetti.
