Lisa's Spinach Calzones

I realized these hadn't been posted... hope it's ok. They are completely Lisa's recipe.

1 15 oz. container ricotta cheese
2 eggs
2 tablespoons dried Italian Seasoning
3 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 (10 oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 (32 oz.) pkg. frozen white bread dough (thawed) or refrigerated pizza dough
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients except the dough. Set aside. Divide the bread dough into 8 pieces (for 32 oz. frozen bread dough) or 4 pieces each if you are using the smaller frozen loaves. Roll each piece out to about a 6-8 inch circle. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the ricotta filling onto each circle, fold over and seal the edges. Place onto a greased cookie sheet. [I then brushed on melted butter with some Johnny's garlic spread mixed in... yum.] Bake for about 20-30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until nicely browned on the tops and bottoms. Makes 6-8 calzones.

This isn't completely my recipe, it is my advisor for String Music Ed's wife's recipe. Make sense? No? The only important thing is that she was the voice of the "My Little Ponies" jingle. I just can't resist pointing that out.
