Spinach Calzones

The great thing about these, is you can make the whole batch at once for a large crowd (or great leftovers!) or you can make half the batch and freeze the rest to make later (for those of you whose husbands can't stand leftovers). Jason loves these because they're delicious, and I love them because they are quick and easy ... OK and because they're scrumptious.

Spinach Calzones

The Inside:
1 pint ricotta cheese
1 tsp garlic powder or 2 cloves crushed garlic
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 box frozen spinach, thaw and squeeze dry

The Outside:
Frozen Rhoades Texas size rolls
1 egg
Jar of tomato sauce, such as Prego or Ragu

Thaw frozen rolls (Rhoades Texas size) in refrigerator overnight. Knead two rolls together and flatten dough into round. Place 1/3 cup filling in dough and fold over and seal edge (I usually use a fork). Brush with egg and let rise about 45 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees until they are golden brown, about 30 minutes. Serve with heated tomato sauce.
