  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously oil the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Mix together the ground beef and Italian sausage in a large bowl. Add onion, half of the jar of four-cheese red sauce, egg, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and parsley. Mix until well blended.
  3. Divide mixture into 4 oval mini loaves; place in prepared baking dish. Pour the remaining red sauce over tops of meat loaves.
  4. Spray the underside of a large piece of foil with nonstick cooking spray; cover dish tightly.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle loaves with shredded mozzarella cheese.
  6. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Bake uncovered until cheese is melted and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F, about 10 more minutes.

These were delicious and very easy to prepare. The only sausage I had on hand was venison but I'm glad I used it. This recipe made it very juicy. All the flavors in this went very well together ...

Excellent combination of ingredients! I followed the directions and ingredients except halving them with just a couple of variations in preparation. I looked at the other reviews and decided t...

These are just very large meatballs, really. In fact, you can use the same recipe and make meatballs. I wouldn't think "meatloaf". But they are delicious and easy so I will make again for sure.

Very flavorful! The only thing I did different was save the other 1/2 of sauce to pour over spaghetti & a bit over the top before sprinkling with mozzarella and broiling a few minutes to brown. ...

Wowzer! Really good, easy, delicious. Only did one thing differently. I used hot italian sausage (I love spicy). I also only used 1/2 the cheese at the end. This will replace all other meatloaf ...

These individual meatloaves have a lot of flavor. Will make again. Followed recipe exactly.

Loved the combination of meats, very different from your regular meatballs

Use covered casserole instead of 9x13 pan. That makes it easier to tell when you are getting too much liquid in the sauce. The aroma while these were baking had me drooling. I plan to use this...
