Sausage Spinach Crescent Calzones


I had no idea or plan for dinner last night, which seems to be happening all too often for me lately!  So, I had gotten spinach from Bountiful Baskets in the morning, and wanted to incorporate that in somehow.  Then, I remembered I had 2 cans of crescent rolls about to expire, so, I thought I could use them calzone style with spinach, Parmesan, and mozzarella.  But, my husband would complain there was no meat, so I decided to use sausage, which I luckily have a stock of in my freezer ($2.99 at the commissary plus $.50 off 1 coupon = excellent price for Johnsonville Italian sausage!).  These turned out really great, and you could still them with a variety of meats, veggies, and cheeses.  Yum!


Sausage Spinach Crescent Calzones

What you need:

1 pound Italian sausage
2 cans crescent rolls
1 cup chopped spinach
1 cup shredded mozzrella
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Olive oil
Italian blend seasoning

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Brown the sausage in a large skillet; drain fat.

Open crescent roll cans and unroll, leaving as rectangles.  You will get 4 rectangles per can.  Lay crescent roll out on a baking sheet and press the diagonal cut to seal it.  Add sausage, spinach, and cheeses to one half.  Fold the other half over the filling and press edges to crimp and seal.  Repeat for remaining crescent rolls.  Brush or spray tops with olive oil and sprinkle with Italian blend seasoning.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown.  Serve with warm pizza sauce, if desired.
