Italian Broccoli Rabe Sausage Mushrooms Marsala Roll Recipe

I love Broccoli Rabe in slices of a crusty loaf

of Ciabatta Italian bread, so this calzone has all the taste of a great sandwich of these greens with homemade sausage mushrooms, cheeses, garlic and extra virgin olive oil flavors. Of course you can leave the meat out if your vegetarian, not a problem at all, still perfectly delicious!
Cool slightly before cutting

Baked till crusty looking and browned evenly

Roll dough seam side down to bake on cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil, oil sprayed

Pizza dough rolled out, filled and ready to roll

Homemade pizza dough, homemade sausage

Saute in garlic, oil, and red pepper flakes

Fresh Italian Broccoli Rabe

1 fresh dough rolled out 12x8 around 1/4 inch thick

1 bunch of broccoli rabe washed and stems cut, (boil first for 1/2 hour and then sauteed in garlic and olive oil) in the above link recipe

4 links of sausage sliced and sauteed

2 teaspoons additional minced garlic

1/2 cup of fresh mushrooms

2 cups mozzarella shredded

4 tablespoons grating cheese

extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoon Marsala wine

In non stick pan add 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, saute garlic, add sausage, mushrooms saute for 4 minutes, drain sausage oil out. In the same pan, add 2 tablespoon of Marsala wine, stir in cooked broccoli rabe, mix everything together well. Stretch out dough with floured hands, rest for around two minutes to a 12x8x 1/4 inch rectangle. Evenly spread on the dough broccoli rabe mixture, add mozzarella and grating cheese on top. Roll up like a jelly roll tight, pinching both ends together to seal. Place on oiled sheet of foil with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, then onto a cookie sheet and bake on a 400 degree oven till browned around 40 minutes.


  1. This looks absolutely wonderful my friend! This looks more like a Stromboli than Calzone but then again, I don't know all of the Italian terminology for recipes.

    Gorgeous job once again!

    I just downloaded SKYPE on my computer this morning. I still need a microphone and camera. You would be a great one to talk real time to!

    Keep up the great work!

  2. This reminds me of stromboli I think it's called. I used to make it often for my boys but haven't made one in a long while. Yours looks magnificent!

  3. I love broccoli rabe; the more garlic the better! Wrapping it up with sausage and mushrooms in a calzone? Fantastic combination!

  4. Wow, this stuffed roll sounds amazing with broccoli rabe and sausage, yum!

  5. great recipe,claudia!looks so yummy!

  6. What a special recipe and Calzone… I'd like to try it this weekend if I can.



  7. Wow, so want to make this. Great way to get some veggies into Alex. Do you think I could make it with just regular red wine or does it have to be marsala?

  8. Yum...dip it into some good sauce and call me happy! This looks great.

  9. I don't know if I've ever had Broccoli Rabe (or if I can find it where I live) Would this work with spinach? I love this idea though and want to give it a try!

  10. Broccoli rabe and sausage is a classic Italian combination, irresistible recipe!

  17. Oh! This stuffed bread looks delicious, it sure makes a great meal :-)

  18. Hey Claudia, I'm finally getting back after that traveling wedding weekend! I'm making stromboli tomorrow night. I have some greens and sausage in the freezer, will be trying this out, it sounds great.

  19. The only real difference between a calzone and a stromboli is that one is folded over into a big pocket, and the other is rolled, so it really doesn't matter what you choose to call it- especially when it's filled with a great flavor combination like Broccoli Rabe and Sausage.
