1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley, chopped onion, minced garlic, egg, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and pepper. Mix well using your hands or a spoon.

3. Shape the mixture into meatballs, about 1-2 inches in diameter, and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
