Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Sprinkle squash with salt and pepper, and lightly spray with cooking oil. Place in a baking dish flesh side down and cover with cling film.
Microwave on high for 10 to 15 minutes or until flesh is fork-tender.
Meanwhile, cook beef and pork in 1 tablespoon of oil on medium high heat until well browned, stirring frequently to crumble. Drain and set aside. In the same frying pan, cook the onion and garlic until onion is translucent. Combine beef and pork with cheese and onions and spoon mixture into squash halves.
Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and squash is lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.
