Olive Garden had a great idea stuffing chicken Alfredo into a doughy calzone. We had an even better idea: stuffing chicken Alfredo into a doughy calzone AND doing so in a guilt-free fashion. Enjoy!

3/4 cup chopped onion
1 tsp. chopped garlic
4 cups chopped spinach leaves
4 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese

2 tbsp. fat-free sour cream
2 tbsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping

1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/8 tsp. black pepper
10 oz. cooked and sliced skinless chicken breast
1 package Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust refrigerated dough
Whole-wheat flour, for dusting

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook until softened and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add spinach to the skillet. Stirring frequently, cook until wilted, about 1 minute.

Transfer cooked veggies to a strainer, and blot away excess moisture.

To make the filling, in a large bowl, mix cheese wedges with sour cream until smooth and uniform. Stir in Parm-style topping, garlic powder, basil, and pepper. Add cooked veggies and sliced chicken to the cheese mixture, and stir to coat.

Roll out dough into a rectangle of even thickness, about 10 inches by 9 inches. Slice into 5 strips, each about 2 inches by 9 inches.

Lightly sprinkle workspace with flour, and place 1 dough strip in the center. Fold strip in half twice, and flatten with your palm. Use your hands (or a rolling pin) to form the dough into a circle about 6 inches in diameter. Place 1/5th of filling (about 1/2 cup) in the center. Stretch and pull the top of the dough over filling to meet the bottom, forming a crescent. Use your fingers or a fork to firmly seal edges. (It doesn't need to look perfect!)

Carefully transfer to baking sheet. Repeat process 4 times with remaining dough strips and filling, lightly re-sprinkling workspace with flour, if needed. Poke a few slits in each calzone, to let steam escape.

Bake until golden brown, 18 - 20 minutes. Enjoy!
