Leftover Pizza Lasagna

I had a whole  plain cheese pizza leftover from dinner last night so instead of just freezing it or eating it for breakfast I decided to make it into a lasagna!

1 baked  pizza(16 inch just covered it)
3 cups tomato spaghetti sauce(jarred or homemade)
1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
1 egg
1 TB dried oregano
1/2 TB parsley
salt and pepper to taste

1 cup mozzarella
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

a few handfuls of baby spinach and/or any other "toppings" you might like, you could add olives, bell peppers, pepperoni or just about anything your heart desires!

Cut cooled pizza into squares or strips.
Reserve 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce

In a 9 x 13 pan spread a scoop of the spaghetti sauce to thinly cover the pan.

Arrange pizza strips on the bottom of the pan, I made my bottom layer a little thicker

In a food processor or high powered blender mix ricotta, egg and seasonings. Blend to combine completely.

Spread 1/2 the ricotta mixture over the pizza strips, add 1/2 the sauce, 1/2 any veggies you are using and 1/2 the mozzarella.

Add another layer of pizza strips(this one can be spread out a little further)....then repeat previous layer.

Add a last layer of pizza and top with the reserved 1/2 cup of spaghetti sauce and the Parmesan cheese

Cover with foil, bake 30 minutes, remove foil and bake 15 minutes more until heated through.

Allow to set for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
