Today was the first day back to school for the girls and tonight was a busy one. I relied on some prepared foods to put together dinner. I made a combination calzone using Trader Joe's fresh pizza dough and pizza sauce. For the filling I used gimme lean sausage, slice sauteed mushrooms, sliced black olives and a little bit of veg pepperoni I had in the freezer. For each individual calzone I used a half slice of tofutti mozzarella. I ended up with lots of extra filling and will probably make a pizza for lunch one day this week. This made 8 calzones which was more than enough for dinner plus leftovers to put in the girls lunches tomorrow. I baked these at 450 for about 18 minutes. Yum.

To go with the calzones I made a spinach salad - baby spinach, grape tomatoes, avocado and toasted walnut with a balsamic vinaigrette (olive oil, balsamic vinegar, crushed garlic clove, a little dijon and a dash of sugar - seasoned with salt and pepper). It was a thrown together salad that ended up being very, very good :-)

I love TJ's ready-made pizza crust! It's such a time saver. Where do you find the Toffuti "Cheese" slices?
