Creamy Pizza Lasagna




Of all the days to use my oven for dinner I pick a day where it's warm and muggy. Go figure. Well, the extra heat was worth it because this Lasagna was a big hit with the family! How can you go wrong when you combine all your favorite pizza toppings with cheese, and pasta. It was delish and can be made ahead of time as well. My kind of recipe!


Creamy Pizza Lasagna
Serves 8

Ingredients
12 no bake lasagna noodles (I used Barilla)
3 cups pizza sauce
1 15oz container ricotta cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
2 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Pizza toppings of your choice-(We used pepperoni, peppers, and Italian meatballs)

In a large bowl combine, ricotta, cream cheese, parmesan, garlic powder, and 1.5 cups of the shredded mozzarella cheese.
Spread 1/4 cup sauce in bottom of a 13x9 casserole dish. Lay three noodles over sauce. Spread ricotta cheese mixture over noodles and top with some of the pepperoni, peppers, and meatballs. Pour some pizza sauce over the toppings. Repeat three times and finish with a layer of remaining shredded mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.

Bake covered for 60 minutes at 375. During the last five minutes of cooking remove foil and let cheese get brown and bubbly. Let stand five minutes before serving. Enjoy!
