Spaghetti [squash] Pie

1 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons onion, chopped
1 clove garlic finely chopped
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
8 ounces cream cheese
1 egg
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (half of a regular sized bag)
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese 
1 spaghetti squash

Cut the squash in half and place it cut side down in a microwave safe dish along with 1/4 C water.
Microwave for 7-10 minutes. 
Brown the hamburger with the onion and garlic; drain off the fat. 
Mix in the spaghetti sauce.

Meanwhile, soften the cream cheese in a medium-size microwaveable bowl for about 40-60 seconds. Stir until creamy; beat in the egg until well mixed. 
Using a fork, separate the inside of the squash from the shell.
Add the "spaghetti" to the meat sauce.
Spread half of the meat mixture evenly in the bottom of a greased, 8 x 8" glass baking pan. Spread the egg/cream cheese mixture over the meat; top with the mozzarella, then the rest of the meat... and maybe a little more mozzarella.

Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. 

Bake at 350ยบ about 30 minutes until hot and bubbly. 

Let stand 3 minutes before serving.
