Carb Conscious Calzones

I recently rediscovered a recipe my mom used to make us when we were little. I never knew it was "healthy" for us. These little calzones are so delicious and easy.

  • 8 Large whole wheat tortillas

  • 3 cups part skim milk ricotta cheese

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1/4 Parmesan cheese

  • 6 slices ham lunch meat, chopped into pieces

  • 1 medium tomato, cubed

  • salt and pepper

  • 8 pieces tin foil

  • tomato sauce

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, chopped up ham and tomato, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mix well. To stuff calzones take a piece of foil, then place one tortilla on top. Add in about 1/2 a cup of ricotta mixture, and wrap up tortilla like a burrito, then tightly wrap foil around the calzone and place on baking sheet. Continue to do this with all 8. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Serve with tomato sauce for dipping!
