Super Quick and Easy Dinner! Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs

Since my dinner looked so crappy, I thought I'd share a photo of my pretty cat! I've decided to take part in the 365 project and take a picture every day. I'd love to take loads of time over them, but I think a lot of the time it will be a quick snap with my phone. Here is the set if you'd like to check them out! The lovely barbara got me started on this, thank goodness for twitter!
Anyway, what with all this faffing about with photos, you'll need a quick idea for dinner, this is also super healthy and delicious!
Spaghetti Squash with meatballs -serves around 4

1 large spaghetti squash
1 large tin marinara sauce (I love trader joes low fat version)
meatballs (I used trader joes meatless meatballs)
grated cheese
Timing will vary depending on your microwave.
Microwave or steam each half of the squash until cooked, about 2 x 4 mins each half.
Place the frozen meatballs into the squash, cover with sauce and microwave for another 2 x 4 mins.
Cover with grated cheese and grill until bubbly.
If you dont have a microwave you can steam the squash, then put the meatballs and sauce in, cover with cheese and then pop in the oven at around 350f for around 45 mins.

Tina is a moggie that we got from a landlady of ours via a shelter although she seems to think she's of very special breeding!

And the squash ain't so bad to look at either.
I'm a huge squash fan, but find spaghetti squash far less appealing. Maybe I'll have to try out this recipe since there' so much other stuff.
