Spinach & Artichoke calzone/stromboli filling

This past several months our son has been going back and forth between being a vegetarian and being a meat eater.   He is currently a vegetarian, so part of tonight’s dinner was vegetarian for him.   I had bits and pieces of things leftover from the past week and half of meals, so I decided to make stromboli, pasta salad and grapes for dinner.   What is a stromboli you might ask?   It is a lean and slightly salty yeast dough (like a pizza dough which is what I use) rolled out fairly thin into a rectangle and the fillings layed out similar to how you would do a pizza, but then you take one of the ends and start rolling up jelly roll or cinnamon roll style.   Place on a baking sheet (I sprinkle the baking sheet with corn meal to keep the stromboli from sticking and to add a little texture to the bottom) and bake at 380-400 for 25-30 minutes.   You want a nice golden brown color on the outside crust.

For tonight’s stromboli’s I did one with provolone cheese, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni, the other I did with a spinach and artichoke filling.


Everyone but the vegetarian liked this better than the other stromboli….it was DELICOUS! 🙂    Our son said there was one of the flavors in it that he wasn’t fond of, I think it was the artichoke (there are a LOT of artichokes in this….next time I’ll do broccoli in place of the artichokes).  Here’s the recipe…..
