Quick and Easy Calzones


The first few weeks after having the twins, we watched a lot of TV! πŸ™‚ We watched Parks and Rec (which is hilarious) – and listening to Ben talk about Calzones every other episode made me really want one! I finally got around to making these calzones, and they were so much easier than I thought they would be! They make a great substitution for our Friday night pizza night!
