I’m always looking for new dishes to make for my family and
I love putting new spins on traditional recipes. So when I got the opportunity
to put my own spin on the Ragú Classic Sausage and Peppers, I was super excited!

I started to think about what my family really likes to eat and how they like
to eat. Italian food is always a favorite in my home. Also, my husband and
daughter both love things that they can grab and eat quickly, even for dinner.

So I decided to take the Classic Sausage and Peppers recipe and make my
New Tra-Dish of Sausage and Peppers Calzones! The recipe is super easy and
only requires a few simple ingredients. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
