Italian Calzones

We made Italian Calzones over the weekend.  Real ones you don’t put sauce inside of the pastries but dip it later when eating.  I’ve made these a few times and they are so delicious.

1 pound italian sausage cooked
3/4 cup of ricotta cheese
1 cup of mozzarella cheese
1 cup of parmesan cheese
1 egg
1 teaspoon of chopped parsley
Fresh Basil chopped

Mix it all together in a bowl with a dash of salt and pepper.

Usually I make my dough from scratch but with a toddler running around, ain’t nobody got time for that!  So I found this premade dough at Safeway.

I make 4 round circles and divide the mixture between the four of them, fold over the dough to make a crescent shape, wet the edges with a little water and roll into the middle to seal. Poke a few holes in the top for the steam to escape or you’ll have a blow-out!

Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Dip in marinara sauce.  So delicious and EASY.
