Calzone Casserole
  • 1 can Pillsbury crescent rolls
  • 2/3 lb. ground beef or combination of beef and Italian sausage
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 1/4 cup of your favorite tomato sauce
  • 15 ounce container of ricotta cheese
  • 2/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the minced garlic, diced onions, basil, and oregano. Under medium heat, cook for a few minutes before adding the ground meat. Be sure to separate the meat into small chunks while cooking as ground meat has a tendency to stick together in a frying pan. Cook just long enough so the meat is no longer red. Drain off the excess liquid. Add 1 cup of tomato sauce. Stir well and simmer, covered for 5 minutes and then set aside.

Unroll the crescent rolls and with a rolling pin, roll out to twice the size, enough to cover the casserole dish twice. Be sure to sprinkle some flour on the top and bottom to prevent the dough from sticking.

In a large bowl, mix the ricotta cheese with 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese.

Place half of the meat mixture evenly in a 10" by 10" casserole dish. Place half the cheese mixture on top of that followed by one layer of the rolled out crescent rolls. Repeat the process with a second layer or meat, cheese and dough. Spread the remaining 1/4 cup of tomato sauce evenly over the top and bake, covered for 20 minutes at 360 degrees. Uncover and bake another 10 minutes. Mix the remaining parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Spread over the top and bake, uncovered for an additional 5 minutes.

  • Romaine leaves
  • Feta cheese
  • Tomato
  • Cucumber
  • Caesar salad dressing. See below.
Use a whole Romaine leaf. Cut off the stalk to where the leaf begins to broaden. Spread the leaf flat as best you can on a cutting board. From a block of Feta cheese, make slices and then strips about the size of fast food french fries, 1/4" by 1/4". Slice a tomato 1/4" thick and then slice again to the same french fry size. Slice a cucumber into 1/4" slices. Cut out the center of each leaving doughnut shapes. Lay the strips of cheese in the center of one side of the Romaine leaf (not the center of the leaf itself). Do the same with the tomato. Drizzle a small amount of Caesar dressing over the cheese and tomato. If the Romaine leaves are large enough, small amounts of other chopped or sliced vegetables such as onions, avocado, olives or mushrooms may be added. Fold over the front edge of the leaf to capture the mixture and continue rolling through the stem and around the other side. Slide two cucumber rings over the rolled leaf. Place each one 1/3 from the end. Hollowed plum tomato slices as well as onion rings may be used with the cucumber to add variety and color.
