  1. Preheat oven to 400. Place squash cut-side down, in a 9 by 13 inch baking pan; add ¼ inch and cover with foil. Bake 50 minutes or until squash is tender.
  2. While squash is baking, coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Add olive oil and tilt to coat the bottom. Add lamb, onion, and garlic; sauté until lamb is brown, about 5 minutes.

  4. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in rice and tomato sauce. Remove from heat.

  6. Place squash, cut side up, in plan. Fill each hollow with ½ cup of the meat filling.
