    Courtly's Note:

    "Using convenient frozen meatballs and prepared pie pastry, this heart sandwich is a great time-saver. To add crunch and color, drop in roasted red or green pepper strips." From TOH.

      This was okay. It was a quick and easy lunch. We enjoyed it. However, being that you use pie crust, it is not the typical calzone. Don't think I will do it that way again , just because of the crust factor. However, a good one time meal. Never would have thought of using meatballs.
