This is a really great dish for busy weeknights! We added a bit more garlic, a little salt and some fresh ground black pepper to the meat mixture. We also cut the recipe in half for serving to just hubby and I. So easy and very tasty! I usually have all of these ingredients on hand, too! This will definately make it onto our table again.
Wow! These were so easy to make and they taste really good. Hearty and filling and what I would call comfort food. I had all the ingredients on hand and never would have thought to make this so I am glad you posted the picture on the "talk" boards. My husband says thank you!
When my husband smacks his lips while eating something, then it's a pretty good recipe. A change I will make next time, is to cool the filling, as the heat "melted" the dough and was difficult to handle. I believe that the filling would be great in a calzone too. :)
