Spaghetti Squash Lasagna (No Pasta)

A lower calorie and health version of an old favorite. Also known as how I got my son to eat Spaghetti Squash.
Some times I tried to sneak in mushrooms, but my DS never would eat with mushrooms.

Prep time doesn't include the cooking of the spaghetti squash which can be done in the microwave and takes about 13 minutes when microwaved.
