    Ingredients:
    •    1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs
    •    1 onion, minced
    •    4 garlic cloves, minced
    •    4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
    •    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    •    500 grams ground beef
    •    500 grams canned tuna flakes, drained
    •    2 eggs
    •    1 cup milk
    •    1 to 2 packs ready-made spaghetti sauce
    •    500 grams spaghetti (cook according to package directions, set aside)
    •    Salt and pepper to taste
    •    Oil for frying


    Procedure:
    1. To make tuna balls, combine breadcrumbs, onions, garlic, parsley, and cheese. Add in beef and tuna. Mix well.

    2. Beat eggs and milk together; add to mixture. Knead.

    3. Cover mixture with plastic wrap and chill for 10 to 15 minutes. Heat oil in medium-high temperature.

    4. Shape mixture into balls. Fry until golden brown; use tongs to turn them over for even cooking. Place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

    5. In another pan, heat spaghetti sauce. Add tuna balls; simmer then set tuna balls aside.

    6. Toss noodles in spaghetti sauce. Heat for a few minutes.

    7. Place spaghetti in a serving platter; top with tuna balls and Parmesan cheese.

    8. Serve hot.
