    This is a nice and easy recipe that my hubby loves. I make it on the weekend and then we take leftovers for lunch all week!

    Points: 6 points per calzone

    3/4 cup 1% low-fat cottage cheese
    1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
    1/4 cup 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
    3 tbsp. grated fresh parmesan cheese
    10 oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
    7 oz. bottle of roasted red bell peppers, drained and chopped
    1 tsp. garlic powder
    1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
    10 oz can refrigerated pizza crust
    cooking spray
    1/4 cup shredded part-skin mozzarella cheese
    1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
    1 1/2 cups bottled fat-free Italian herb pasta sauce (such as Muir Glen)

    Preheat oven to 425.

    Combine first 4 ingredients; beat with a mixer at medium speed 2 minutes or until well-blended. Stir in spinach, bell peppers, garlic powder, and black pepper.

    Unroll pizza crust onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; pat into 14" x 10" rectangle. Spread spinach mixture over half of the crust, leaving a 1" border. Sprinkle mozzarella and cheddar over spinach mixture. Fold dough over filling; press edges together to seal.

    Bake at 425 for 15 minutes or until browned. Cool on a wire rack 5 minutes. Heat pasta sauce in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cut calzone into 6 squares, and top with sauce.

    Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 square and 1/4 cup sauce)

    Sounds great. Next time it is my turn to cook I am going to try this!


    We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors....but they all exist very nicely in the same box.
