Cooking a spaghetti squash in the microwave oven Prick the squash several times with a fork and place in a baking dish.

  1. Would this recipe also work with a butternut squash?

  2. We used beef meatballs rather than veal. Only change we made. It was delicious....just enough left for my lunch tomorrow!

  3. Very tasty soup and easy to make. Had frozen beef meatballs which worked fine, will try turkey meatballs next time. Skip the salt, plenty spicy without. Really enjoyed, will make again!
