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.
