Chard, Ricotta, and Sweet Onion Calzones

A perfect all-in-one meal, calzones are a hearty way to tuck several food groups into one compact package. Easy to vary, easy to make.

Our simple recipe uses purchased dough to speed up prep time, which means you can have dinner on the table in less than an hour. Best of all, you can customize the fillings to please even picky eaters (and, while you're at it, sneak in healthy ingredients like peppers, broccoli, and chard).To make in advance, prepare through step 3 (for the chard calzones, prepare through step 4), then freeze on a baking sheet. When frozen, wrap each calzone with aluminum foil and keep in freezer for up to 1 month. Bake at 375° for 30 to 35 minutes, until browned and cooked through.
