Pizza Roll Ups and Cheesy Bread

Sometimes the best recipes happen by accident.

I accidentally left my lasagna pan at my son's apartment in Wisconsin, so when I made lasagna last night I had to use a different baking pan.  The baking pan is alot smaller than my lasagna pan and when I finished making the lasagna I had about 6 leftover lasagna noodles.  hmmm...what to do with the leftover noodles?  Then inspiration hit me and I decided to try a lasagna roll up infused with the flavors of pizza.

My family loved, loved these pizza roll ups better than my lasagna!  I'm going to make them for a church supper next week.  They are delish!  Try them at your house.

Pizza Roll Ups
1 package of lasagna noodles
sliced pepperoni
pizza sauce with basil
shredded mozzarella
shredded mild cheddar cheese
1 carton of ricotta cheese
2 eggs
1 jar of Prego or favorite spaghetti sauce
oregano, garlic
optional: parmesan cheese, salt 

Prepare the ricotta filling.  In a bowl mix the following:
1 carton of ricotta cheese
2 eggs
Oregano, garlic to your taste (I use about 1 tablespoon Oregano, 1 teaspoon garlic)

Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to boil.  Add lasagna noodles and cook until tender.  Use tongs to lay noodles flat on cookie sheet then spread with ricotta mixture, add 3 pepperoni slices per noodle, a line of pizza sauce and top with mozzarella and cheddar (see picture above).  Roll each lasagna noodle and place in greased baking dish.  Top with Prego (or spaghetti sauce), and finish with a sprinkling of mozzarella and a little cheddar cheese.  Cover and bake for 50-60 minutes.

Cheesy Bread
Favorite pizza dough recipe, rolled to the size of cookie sheet.
Spray with butter flavor cooking spray, or brush with olive oil
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese
Season with oregano and garlic.

Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom.  Slice with a pizza cutter.
