Made to directions with some minor changes. Fat-free cottage cheese & sour cream instead of low-fat and fresh garlic instead of powder -- because that's what we had on hand. Added one link of leftover Italian turkey sausage, parboiled & cut in small dice. Served with salad & Chianti. Creamy filling, crispy dough, nice colors on the plate. Very good.
Pack in the calcium with this great-tasting spinach calzone recipe. It's easy to make, and you only need a salad to complete the meal.
