Zucchini ricotta calzone

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon Butter
2 cups Zucchini, packed, grated
2 eaches Garlic cloves, minced
1 cup Ricotta cheese
1 cup Cheddar cheese, extra-old shredded
1 each Egg
½ teaspoon Oregano, dried
½ teaspoon Basil
½ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Pepper
¼ teaspoon Nutmeg
1 pounds Pizza dough (500g), prepared

IN skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and garlic. Cook, stirring often, 7 to 10 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. In a bowl, blend together zucchini mixture, ricotta, Cheddar, egg, oregano, basil, salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Refrigerate while rolling out the dough.

DIVIDE dough into 4 portions and shape into balls. On lightly floured surface, roll or stretch each ball into an 8-inch circle. Divide filling among dough rounds; fold dough over to make half-circles, leaving enough dough on the bottom edge to fold over top edge. Crimp edges to seal (it may be easier to fill and form soft calzone right on the baking sheet).

BAKE on greased baking sheet in 425F oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

* Calzones are baked pizza-dough turnovers. Buy ready-to-bake pizza dough in plastic bags in the refrigerator or freezer sections of many

supermarkets. The weight may vary -- if you have more than you need, cut off the extra and freeze to make pizza later. Serve calzones warm

or at room temperature with a tossed salad. Submitted By SAM LEFKOWITZ On 1994-08-03,1817
