Boy oh boy! These are delicious! My husband was already eating and oohing and ahhing over his meat loaf before I had finished taking pictures. He said these reminded him of the meatballs that I make but in meatloaf form. These were so tender and moist. I will definitely be making this recipe again! I did make a few changes to the recipe. I used ground turkey instead of beef and I baked them for about 20 minutes instead of 15 minutes. When I make these again I will add a few more spices and some garlic.
I found this recipe in my February issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine. I’m so glad that I ripped out this one! This is a great recipe for a week night because it goes together and bakes so quickly. I paired this with some mashed potatoes with mozarella and broccoli. I suggest you try this recipe soon! Sorry about the blurry picture. All of my pictures turned out blurry! Argh!

Divide beef mixture in four equal portions. Shape each portion in a 5-1/2×2-inch oval. Place on 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Spoon on remaining pasta sauce and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
