A nice tasty meatless meal ~ I made homemade whole wheat pizza dough and divided it into 4 large calzones and baked them at 400F for 20 minutes. I used red kidney beans instead of the cannellini (white kidney) beans and added 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes and 2 ounces feta cheese to the spinach/bean mixture. Made for my Spring PAC 2010 adopted chef ~
