Mini Meat Loaves

I really liked this version of meat loaf. Besides the nice individual portions, the flavor is more abundant and the spaghetti sauce gives it a different, tastier touch.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-1 (26 oz) jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce (I used traditional)
-1 1/2 lbs extra lean ground beef
-1 1/2 cups herb seasoned stuffing
-2 eggs, beaten
-1 small onion, finely chopped
-1/2 green pepper, finely chopped
-1 tsp dried parsley
-salt and pepper, to taste
-1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Directions:
Preheat oven at 400 F.
Mix 1 cup of the sauce with beef, stuffing, eggs, onion, pepper, parsley, salt and pepper, and shredded cheese.  Mix well.  Shape into 6 mini loaves and place on a shallow baking dish (I used my cookie sheet).  Spread 2 Tbs sauce on top of each loaf.  Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.  Heat remaining sauce and serve with meat loaves.  Enjoy!
