Pizza Bread Pudding

Every week or so, I have to play "Chopped Refrigerator Challenge" at home, and make dinner out of what is left in the refrigerator, because I hate wasting anything. This dinner was a product of that desire to use up the remains of our camping trip. 

I know, this is leftover biscuits, but you could easily use any leftover bread you have on hand. And this could just as easily be a breakfast dish as dinner, but I was using up the leftovers from our pizza grilling extravaganza on our camping trip. It was really good, and I am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow !
Pizza Bread Pudding
1 tube pop open refrigerator biscuits (or 2 cups leftover bread, cubed) 
1 cup mild Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled 
1/2 cup onion, chopped 
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped 
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided 
6 eggs 
2 cups marinara sauce, divided 
Preheat oven to 375. Spray an 8 by 8 pan with non-stick spray. Cut biscuits into bite size pieces, and spread half into the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle half of the sausage, peppers, onions, and cheese over the top. Add the remaining biscuits on top, then the remaining sausage, peppers and onions. Whisk together the eggs, and 1/2 cup of the marinara sauce, and pour over the top. Cover with foil, and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil, top with remaining cheese and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Heat remaining marinara sauce, cut pudding into individual servings, and serve with marinara.
