Add the minced onions, 1 tablespoon garlic, parsley and bread. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Form the mixture into small balls. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. When the oil is hot add the meatballs and brown for 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels. In a large saucepan, heat the remaining oil. Add the onions.

Whisk the tomato paste and water together. Add to the tomatoes. Add the meatballs. Bring the liquid to a boil, over high heat. Turn the heat down to medium-low and simmer for 4 hours, stirring occasionally. Reseason with salt and pepper. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain. Drizzle the pasta with olive oil. Season the pasta with salt and pepper. Using a box grater, grate the cheese. To serve, mound the pasta in the center of each bowl. Spoon the meat balls and sauce over the pasta. Garnish with the grated cheese
