Calzones (easy!)

I got this recipe from a friend last week and it was soooo fun I had to share!


1 Cup part skim ricotta
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
4 ounces finely chopped (or ground) cooked ham
2 tsp oregano leaves
4 Pillsbury country biscuits

Preheat oven to 400F 

In bowl combine first four ingredients; set aside.  Roll each biscuit between  2 sheets of wax paper, forming four 6 inch circles; spoon 1/4 of cheese mixture onto centre of each.  Moisten edges of dough slightly, then fold each circle over, turnover style, forming four calzones; using tines of fork, press edges to seal.  Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and place turnovers on sheets; bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.  Serve immediately.

Serve these with a small dish of spaghetti sauce on the side. 

So of course I changed things up a bit.  I was out of ham so ours were just cheese, I just rolled the biscuits on the counter and they turned out fine.  I didn’t even moisten the edges with water, but probably should have.  I also used only 1 tsp of oregano as that seemed like plenty.  They turned out terrific and were so quick to make!
