Loved, Loved, Loved this!!! Definately skip the salt, you won't miss it. Also, I added more veggies, zucchini, carrotts. I doubled the tomatoe sauce and doubled the recipe and doubled the seasonings. Absolutely 2 thumbs up.
Sorry, but I thought this was VERY bland. And a lot of work to go through for this pie. Made it exactly (except for mushrooms)the way it was written. I could not fit all the spinach mixture nor all the beef mixture in the pie either.
I made this for dinner tonight and this was a hit! Fantastic blend of flavors and very moist, loved the combination of pie crust, spinach and meat.
I doubled the recipe and used 2 pie crusts in a 9x13 glass dish. Served to 6 adults at a casual weekend dinner and not a morsel was left over.
I will definately add this to my regular rotation.
Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
I originally submitted this recipe using ground turkey and turkey sausage. Brown in 1 T olive oil, with 1 T garlic, basil and oregano, you really have to season the meat while cooking. Also, I do not use any salt in my recipe, I don't feel it's needed.
Delicious! (so say husband, kids, and adult friend) I doubled the recipe. No mushrooms or olives (I'm the only one who likes them) and no peppers (I hate them) but substituted zucchini in with the meat and tomato sauce. Pretty much followed everything else. It was good--but I'll probably stick with regular lasagna. Fun to make a change though!
We loved this hearty recipe. It reminded us of a meatlovers deep dish pizza.
The blend of flavors is wonderful. I made my own crust so I'm not sure it is worth all that effort, but it is good. I absolutely will use this combination of meat,sauce, cheese and spinach the next time I make calzones. Thank you Office Prisoner!
