Peggy picked our theme for Eating with Ellie this week – STUFFED!!  That meant we could make anything that was filled or stuffed with something else.  Ellie has quite a few recipes that fit this category but I have had one in mind for quite a while.

These are Ellie’s Turkey Sausage-Stuffed Pizza Pockets

and they are tasty.  The filling is turkey Italian sausage browned and mixed with spinach or arugula, marinara sauce, and mozzarella cheese.  The filling was so good I easily could have eaten it with a spoon.

I couldn’t find Italian turkey sausage so I used regular and added some Italian seasoning. That worked well.  I also made my own Whole Wheat Pizza dough because I couldn’t find that either.  Ellie said we could use any marinara sauce so I used some that I had made last summer.  

I liked these and plan to freeze the ones that are left.  They are from Ellie’s latest book – You Have it Made. {page 223}  Most of the recipes in the book are made for freezing and doing ahead.  Good plan for these.  

We all stuffed something this week.  Check out what the others made -> Stuff It!

We’d love to have you join in with Eating with Ellie.  We don’t include the recipes.  We’d rather you bought Ellie’s books.  There are some recipes on line.  This pizza pocket one is there on Ellie’s website.

The theme for this week’s I Heart Cooking Clubs is also STUFFED!!  so I am going to kill two meals with one plate!!
