Potatoes, stuffed with an exotic herbed mixture of spaghetti, sun-dried tomatoes and capsicum, are topped with cheese and baked to perfection, till the cheese melts and the filling fuses with the potatoes, resulting in a perfect starter! For your Stuffed Potato with Spaghetti to be firm, remember not to pressure cook the potatoes; follow the instructions in the recipe to semi-cook the potatoes as they will get fully cooked later while baking.

   Hi, Try baking in a convection mode for 8 minutes, but keep checking as we have not tried in a microwave so not very sure of the timings.

It serves as a great starter. Crunchy and soft.. When you have the first bite, you get an amazing crunch of capsicum along the softness of boiled spaghetti and creaminess of fresh cream. The baked potoes with the stuffing and melted cheese on the top just tastes awesome....
