Combine well and shape into 30 meatballs. Heat half the oil and fry in batches – be careful as they break easily.
Put the remaining oil in a pan and cook the onion with the remaining garlic until soft. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, purée, stock, BBQ ketchup and chickpeas you set aside. Simmer gently for 5 minutes.
Stir in the cooked meatballs and simmer for 5 minutes. Serve with the spaghetti and cheese to sprinkle over.
