Score! This recipe is full of cheesy goodness and is a terrific shortcut to a savory Italian dinner. Dip in marinara sauce for an added kick!

Note: We added some of the cheese to the drained, cooled meat prior to filling the dough. It added extra gooeyness that was just delightful. The Test Kitchen
