This cheesy, hearty, spaghetti squash lasagna may just be my new favorite way to eat spaghetti squash. It's warm, comforting, and my go to meal after a long day at work. Usually I like to curl up on the couch, pop on some Netflix, and slowly savor each yummy bite. And since it has about half as many calories as traditional lasagna, I don't feel bad adding a glass of red wine to the mix.
