After reading other reviews, I made a few changes to this recipe and it turned out great (meaning my kids actually liked it) and it was pretty fast. First, I cut the recipe in half. Instead of buying different cheeses, I skipped the ricotta and just used a 2 cup package of shredded Italian cheeses. I also added some sauteed onions, garlic, and red pepper to the spinach mixture. I used way less of the Italian seasoning. Finally, I bought Pillsbury's thin crust pizza dough instead of bread dough. I realized that if I unrolled the dough and held it by the edges, it would stretch out on its own. Then I cut it into rectangles, filled half the rectangle, and folded over. My calzones weren't in the traditional form, but no one cared. I brushed the top with olive oil and added a bit of parmesan. Be careful with the baking time. My calzones only took about 15 minutes.
