    I started out with Chef Meg's recipe, but found that 2 oz of cheese, and 4 oz of meat was too much per serving per calzone for me. I thought these were great, but my 10 year old son gave it the 5 out of 5 star rating! - 11/7/10

    I really liked this recipe and will make if often. I skipped the 'calzone' part and just had it on a plate, like taco salad, with lettuce and a dab of lite sour cream. Next time, I'll throw some black beans in, too. And the best part, besides its yummy taste, is that it goes together so quickly! - 7/24/09
