Mini Meatloaf Parmesan

Serves 6


… 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
… 1 cup bread crumbs
… 1/2 cup milk
… 1 large egg
… 2 teaspoons Italian spice mix or dried oregano
… 1 pound (16 ounces) dry spaghetti
… 1 (24-ounce) jar marinara (pasta) sauce
… 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
… 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, plus more to taste
… 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix ground beef, bread crumbs, milk, egg and Italian spice mix.
  2. Divide the beef mixture into 6 balls. Shape each ball into an oval and place on the baking sheet. Bake until light golden-brown, or until internal temperature reaches 155 degrees, about 30 minutes.
  3. Top each meatloaf with 1/4 cup marinara (pasta) sauce, 2 tablespoons of mozzarella and 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Bake until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
  4. While the meatloaves are in the oven, cook spaghetti according to box directions; drain and return to pot. Toss spaghetti with remaining pasta sauce. Serve spaghetti with meatloaves. Top with Parmesan and parsley. Serve and enjoy.
