From the Test Kitchen

In this crowd-pleasing meal, we’re stuffing calzones with the wonderful, warming flavors of fall. Seasonal butternut squash pairs perfectly with Lacinato kale, an extraordinary variety from Tuscany. Sautéed with a little nutmeg, the vegetables combine with melty Fontina cheese to make a delicious and wholesome filling. Our veggie calzones get their authentic, crackling crusts from a sprinkling of semolina flour (an essential Italian ingredient). Dip them in the savory tomato sauce served on the side for the full-flavored experience!

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard both ends of the squash; peel the squash, then separate the neck and bulb. Halve the bulb lengthwise; remove and discard the pulp and seeds, then medium dice. Remove and discard the kale stems; roughly chop the leaves. Peel and mince the garlic. Cut off and discard the rind of the Fontina cheese; medium dice. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Core the apple and cut into matchsticks; toss with the juice of 1 lemon wedge.

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. Transfer to a large bowl; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Assemble the calzones:
3 Assemble the calzones:

Sprinkle a big pinch of the flour onto a clean, dry work surface. Divide the dough into 4 equal-sized portions. Using your hands, stretch out each portion into a ¼-inch-thick round. 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 the calzones.

Bake the calzones:
4 Bake the calzones:

Sprinkle the remaining flour on a large sheet pan. Carefully place the calzones on 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 at least 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish.

Make the tomato sauce:
5 Make the tomato sauce:

While the calzones bake, in the pan used to make the filling, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the remaining garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Add the remaining tomatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until thoroughly combined; 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:

To make the dressing, in a bowl, combine the remaining Parmesan cheese and the juice of the remaining lemon wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste. Slowly whisk in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until well combined. In a large bowl, combine the arugula and apple. Add as much of the dressing as you’d like (you may have extra). Toss to thoroughly coat; season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish. Serve the baked calzones with the salad and tomato sauce on the side. Enjoy!
