Chefs, these autumn-inspired calzones are bursting with delicious, seasonal flavors. Our unique filling is made from sweet butternut squash, earthy kale and creamy Fontina cheese. (And we’re serving the classic tomato sauce on the side, for dipping!) A signature duo of spices—aromatic Italian seasoning and warming ground nutmeg—plays off the comforting flavors of our calzones. To round out the meal, we’re dressing up peppery arugula and sweet, tart apple with a Parmesan vinaigrette.

Make the filling:
2 Make the filling:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the squash; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned and tender. Add the kale, spice blend and half the garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until the kale has wilted. Add ⅓ of the tomatoes. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until well combined. Remove from heat; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Assemble the calzones:
3 Assemble the calzones:

Sprinkle half the flour onto a work surface. Divide the dough into 4 equal-sized portions; using your hands, gently stretch into ¼-inch-thick rounds. (If the dough is resistant, let rest for 5 minutes.) Divide the filling (you may have extra) between the rounds; top with the Fontina cheese and half the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Fold each round in half over the filling. Using your fingers or a fork, press or crimp the edges of the dough to seal.

Bake the calzones:
4 Bake the calzones:

Sprinkle the remaining flour onto a large sheet pan. Carefully transfer the calzones to the prepared sheet pan; lightly drizzle or brush the tops with olive oil. Bake 16 to 18 minutes, or until browned on top. Remove from the oven and let stand for 2 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish.

Make the tomato sauce:
5 Make the tomato sauce:

While the calzones bake, wipe out the pan used to make the filling. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil and heat on medium until hot. Add the remaining garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the remaining tomatoes and ¼ cup of water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until thickened and saucy; season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish.

Make the salad & serve your dish:
6 Make the salad & serve your dish:

While the calzones continue to bake, to make the dressing, in a bowl, combine the remaining Parmesan cheese and the juice of the remaining lemon wedges. Slowly whisk in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until well combined; season with salt and pepper to taste. Just before serving, in a bowl, combine the arugula and apple. Add enough of the dressing to coat (you may have extra). Toss to mix; season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish. Serve with the baked calzones and tomato sauce. Enjoy!
