Calzone Rollups Bento

It's a calzone bento, kind of, except this time I rolled up the dough with the fillings inside (salami, pepperoni, cheese, spinach), then baked and sliced into little bite-sized pieces for fun. Yeah, I'm having way too much fun with the calzone-styled foods. It's such a convenient, sandwich-y way to pack a school lunch bento, with so many filling possibilities. The rest of the bento contains roasted red kabocha, steamed Okinawan sweet potato slices, and a cup of grapes and raspberries.

  1. I love calzone!!
    BTW, how long did you roast the kabocha and in what temperature? I love the color. Mine never came out good :( Thanks Sheri

  2. You and my kids all love calzones!
    I slice the kabocha about half inch thick, drizzle with olive oil, and roast in oven about 350F or so until you see them turn crispy, then flip over. Alternatively, you can pan-fry, which I also love, because it gives a crispy edge too. Same thing, fry in olive oil until just brown but not mushy. I like to turn off the heat and add shoyu to the pan after that. Yummy!
