Reduce heat and simmer for 20 - 30 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. To make the meatballs, combine the ground ostrich with the onion, parsley, garlic and spices. Mix together well. Roll into 12 meatballs of equal size. Place the meatballs in a baking dish and bake in an oven preheated to 180°C for 20 minutes. Pour the tomato sauce over the meatballs and bake for a further 20 minutes. Serve hot over pasta, sprinkled with parmesan cheese.
