Pizza Lasagna


9 lasagna noodles prepared according to package directions
1 (15 oz.) can pizza sauce
1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes seasoned with green pepper and onion, undrained
1 (15 oz.) container ricotta cheese
1 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
8 oz.(2 c.) shredded mozzarella cheese -I use more like 3 cups, I love cheese!
1-2 (3.5 oz) pkg. pepperoni slices, depending on how much you like
1 (4.5 oz.) jar sliced mushrooms, drained
1 (2 1/4 oz.) can sliced ripe olives,drained
1/2 c. chopped green bell pepper
2 tbsp. shredded(or grated) Parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 350*. Spray 12 x 8 inch glass baking dish(or I even use 9x13) with nonstick cooking spray. In medium saucepan, combine pizza sauce and tomatoes; cook until thoroughly heated. In medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese and Italian seasoning; mix well. To assemble lasagna, spread 1/4 cup sauce mixture in bottom of baking dish. Arrange 3 cooked noodles over sauce. Spoon and spread half of ricotta mixture over noodles; top with 1/2 cup mozzarella, 1 cup sauce, 1/3 each of the pepperoni slices, mushrooms, olives, and bell pepper. Repeat layers once. Top with remaining noodles, sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms, olives and bell pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until lasagna is bubbly. Let stand at least 10 minutes before serving and enjoy!

*you can adjust the ingredients(toppings) to things you like on a regular pizza
