This is a recipe that has been made in my family since the early 60s. It is a quick and easy recipe that makes a hot-pocket-like meal perfect for dinner for busy students or a great snack on the go. 

It should take about 15 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to bake, and the only safety concerns are with the hot skillet and hot pan from the oven. The total cost for the material is approximately $15.

Materials:
--can opener
--large skillet or pan
--colander
--spatula
--mixing bowl
--cookie sheet

Ingredients:

--1/2 pound of sausage (**can use 1 full pound of hamburger if you don't like sausage)
--1 cup of chopped onion
--6-oz can of tomato paste
--1 1/2 cups of ricotta cheese
--1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
--1 egg
--1 tube of crescent rolls
--1 tbsp of garlic
--2 tsp of parsley
--1 tsp basil
