Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix all the meatballs ingredients together in a large bowl. Shape the mixture into meatballs. (I ended up with about 30 meatballs.) Place all the meatballs onto the baking sheet.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until meatballs are done and browned.
Saute chopped onion in a large skillet until translucent. Add to the skillet the chopped carrots and season carrots & onion with salt to taste. Cover with a lid and saute for couple minutes, until tender. Pour marinara sauce, honey and red wine over the vegetables in the skillet, and stir everything. Simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes.
Add minced garlic and freshly chopped basil, and stir everything.
Add meatballs to the marinara sauce and pour the sauce over them. Garnish with freshly chopped basil if you want.
You can serve the Italian meatballs with marinara sauce over gluten free spaghetti, pasta or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
