Our Italian mother used to whip up these yummy dough pockets when we came home from school for lunch. They’re easy to pick up and dip in sauce.—Marie Rizzio, Interlochen, MI

"These turned out so yummy! We added 2 cloves of garlic. We have to make them again so we can practice folding them so they look pretty!

"This was just ok for me. Guess it's my personal taste preference. Maybe it needed a little garlic? But considering how expensive these 3 cheese are, I won't be making it again since I wasn't in love with it."

"This was quick and easy; always love that in a recipe! My husband and I are sensitive to salt, and we didn't find it overwhelming in this recipe. I did omit the salt and only added pepper since it has enough salt in the cheese and sauce. I used a spicy marinara sauce. Yum!"

"Thank you for your review.  I like when people comment on what they added or substituted.  I don't really care about whether it's healthy or not--I, too, can figure that for myself.  If you don't like the way it tasted or turned out, then let others know.  I usually look for a consensus on whether it was good or not before I try it myself.  I love this site because I can usually find recipes that are easy to make with ingrediants that I would normally use in my own recipes.  "

"Used the thin crust refrigerated dough. I guess I should have packed them fuller as I ended up with extra filling. We dipped them into spaghetti sauce. I sprinkled a little mozzerella before closing but they didn't really need it. The flavor was good and they all got eaten."

"When I make a recipe from ANY site or person, I make it as written. If I want to change something I do it the second time I make it. Give it a try!!!!"

"I for one, HAVE tried this recipe.. it was very tasty... I first made it as it was written... then I made it and added some capacola and pepperoni to it... I like it both ways.. My husband prefers it with the meats... P.S. they refrigerated dough worked fine... maybe next time when I have all day, I will make my own dough..."

" I for one appreciate the comments, regardless of whether I agree with them or not. It helps me determine whether or not I will try the recipe and how to I might prepare it. (P.S. Hunt's makes low-sodium products.)"

" I think the Spinach Calzone sounds delicious. If it doesn't appeal to you, don't make it. If you want to tweak it, that's fine.  What's delicious to one person may taste awful to another. That's why there are so many recipes on this wonderful site."
