Calzone in a wrap? Yes please. These wraps come together fast, are super fresh and taste incredibly delicious. My husband liked dipping his wrap in marinara, which I have to admit is pretty darn good. You could use this or this recipe, or just open a can of your favorite marinara sauce (which is what we did). This recipe came from Darla Evanson, who is a fabulous caterer in Utah. Her niche is doing inexpensive buffets and dinners with everything made from scratch. She’s amazing, and earlier this summer, she shared with me some of her favorite recipes she uses at home… so watch for more coming! In the mean time, enjoy a favorite recipe from a popular professional caterer.
Italian Calzone Wrap
Submitted by Mindy ~ The Sisters Cafe
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 large onion chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound hot Italian sausage
1-2 red bell peppers (1 large or 2 small)
2 teaspoons chopped sundried tomatoes
1 pound fresh mozarella, cut into 1/2″ cubes
1 cup chopped basil leaves
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Tortillas (Tortilla Land uncooked tortillas shells are my favorite)
In a medium skillet, heat oil. Add onion, cook on low for 2 minutes. Add garlic and sausage, crumble as you cook, stirring 3-5 minutes. Drain off excess fat at this point. Add red bell peppers and sundried tomatoes. Cook a few more minutes. Add mozarella and basil leaves. Toss, put the lid on pan and let cheese melt. This only takes a minute or two (cheese will go stringy if left on heat too long). Cook tortilla shells as directed and top with filling. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, wrap it up and serve immediately.
