What's for Dinner Tonight? Spinach Pies, Calzones and Breadsticks

I tried to kill two birds with one stone today and made breadsticks for my daughter and used the same dough to make spinach pies and calzones.  They will last for a couple of meals.  I used a whole teaspoon of salt in the dough and substituted olive oil and parmesan cheese instead of butter and garlic or spices on the breadsticks.  I just used what I had.  The same dough worked perfectly for the spinach pies.  I just rolled it out, cut it into squares, and put the filling on one half and folded it over to make a triangle and sealed the edges.  The filling had cooked spinach ( I got a lot of frozen spinach for free from a friend), feta cheese, grilled onions and spices.  I used allspice, salt, and pepper.  I also put some fresh garlic in with the onions before they were finished browning.  Finally, I put a little tahini with it.  Follow the directions in the recipe after shaping or making into pies.  With some of the same dough, I made calzones since I had pepperoni and cheese.  They also turned out well.  This recipe for bread sticks is a keeper!
