Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine all the meatballs ingredients together, mix well. Form the meatballs into small 1 inch meatballs and place on prepared baking sheet. Mixture should yield about 50 meatballs, more or less depending on size of meatballs.
Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 40 minutes or until meatballs are golden brown. Alternatively you could fry the meatballs in a skillet with a bit of vegetable oil.
While the meatballs are baking, time to make the sauce. In a large Dutch oven or saucepan heat the olive oil over medium heat then add onion and garlic to the pan and cook until onion is soft and translucent.
Add the fire roasted tomatoes to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add the fire roasted tomatoes to the pan and turn down the heat to medium low. Add brown sugar, cajun seasoning, salt, pepper and stir well. Simmer on medium-low heat for about 20 minutes.
Add the chopped basil and your meatballs to the sauce, stir and simmer for another 10 minutes.
Garnish with parsley and serve over cooked pasta or mashed potatoes. I also sprinkled some goat cheese over my meatballs, but Parmesan cheese would work as well.
