Let's Make It
Mix meat, onions, bread crumbs, egg and 2 Tbsp. dressing just until blended. Divide into 12 portions. Press 1 cheese cube into center of each meat portion, then roll into ball.
Heat remaining dressing in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add meatballs; cook 8 to 10 min. or until lightly browned, turning frequently. Stir in tomatoes; simmer 10 min. or until meatballs are done (160ºF), stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, cut squash lengthwise in half. Use spoon to scoop out seeds and membranes; discard. Place squash, cut sides down, in microwaveable baking dish. Add enough water to dish to fill to 1-inch depth. Microwave on HIGH 12 min. or until squash can easily be pierced with fork. Cool slightly. Use fork to scrape squash into spaghetti-like strands.
Serve squash topped with meatballs.
The spaghetti squash can be cooked ahead of time. Microwave squash and pull into strands as directed; place in large microwaveable bowl. Cool, then refrigerate up to 2 days. Discard both squash shells. When ready to serve, microwave squash on HIGH 3 to 5 min. or until heated through. Add remaining ingredients; mix lightly with fork. Microwave 2 min. or until heated through.
Sprinkle with 1/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese before serving.
