Italian Sausage Calzones

My freezer cooking posts have been sparse this week, and not because I haven't been working on projects! Tomorrow I'm getting a 40 lb shipment of chicken breasts from Zaycon. Yes, 40 lbs. So, outside of a few burritos, my freezer cooking this week has been focused on preparing for the influx of chicken my home will see about 10 hours from now. Thankfully one of  my Doulas is coming over to help me tomorrow--otherwise this would be biting off more than I can chew!

In the meantime, I wanted to do a test run of one of the recipes we'll be making tomorrow, so I whipped up a batch of calzones. As I don't have the chicken yet the stuffing is a little different than it will be tomorrow. I used Italian sausage, homemade marinara, and mozerella cheese.

I got a dozen calzones out of the batch, and my hubby and I each "tested" one. So, 10 for going in the freezer, or five lunches. Not bad for an evenings work! The calzones were so good and so inexpensive I really can't believe I'm only now getting around to making them. This recipe will definitely be seeing more use  in the future.

Now I'm going to head to bed and get some rest before tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have a good report to share Friday evening or Saturday!
