Leftover Spinach and Artichoke Dip

This weekend, I made a spinach and artichoke dip for my boyfriend and I to snack on while watching a football game. The only problem was that there was way too much and we had a lot of leftovers. I hated for the dip to go to waste so at the suggestion of a friend, I made a pasta sauce with it the next day. I heated it in a skillet with some olive oil, fresh cracked black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes. I cooked some linguini and tossed the two together. It was pretty great. I'm sure I'll make this dip for us again so I'd love to think of creative ways to use it again. I'm thinking as a filling for stuffed shells or lasagna but are there are any other suggestions?
Would it work in phyllo dough like a spanikopita? Other thoughts would be ravioli filling, mixed into ground pork for sausages, as stuffing for chicken roulade and mixed into scrambled eggs or an omelette filling.
Add it to bacon & some cheese for stuffed baked potato skins...Top a mild fish, like flounder, sole, or halibut along with some breadcrumbs for Florentine. Mac & cheese or add it to a risotto
