  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all of the meatball ingredients together in a large bowl. Form into 16 balls and place in a 8x8 inch glass baking pan. Bake 25-30 minutes flipping them over halfway through.
  3. Meanwhile, with a sharp knife carefully stab the spaghetti squash multiple times so the skin is pierced all around it. Put it on a plate and place it in the microwave for 12-16 minutes on 100% power. It is done when the skin is soft when pierced with a fork.
  4. When squash is done slice it crosswise and let cool (cutting it lengthwise will give you shorter spaghetti strands).
  5. Pour the desired amount of marinara sauce into a large non-stick skillet.
  6. About 5 minutes before meatballs are done begin heating sauce on medium to low heat. When the meatballs are done baking (they should be slightly browned on top and there should be a good amount of juice at the bottom of the pan), scoop them out with a slotted spoon or spatula and put them in the sauce. Cover and simmer for about 5-10 minutes.
  7. While the sauce is simmering, scoop out the seeds of the spaghetti squash. Then scoop out the squash on to plates, or you can use the squash shell as your bowl and simply fluff up the squash with a fork.
  8. Let sauce cool for about 2 minutes before scooping meatballs and sauce over spaghetti squash.
